cereal bars


breakfast cereal bars
this morning i made cereal bars by throwing together 2 cup of oat cereal, 1 cup of puffed wheat cereal, 3/4 cups natural peanut butter, 1/2 cup honey, a dash of salt, a handful of sunflower seeds, and 1 cup of dried cherries. i "melted" the peanut butter with the honey before pouring it over top of the other ingredients, pressed it down, let it cool, and cut them up. YUMMM. i based it on a recipe my friend hannah gave me.

if you're using regular peanut butter you could probably use less and nix the salt. ours is literally just ground up peanuts so it doesn't have the same amount of oils or salt in it. the first batch i made didn't have enough peanut butter and they were certainly delicious but they fell apart more easily because they weren't bound by the gooey peanut butter.

i kind of backed off on the honey because 1. i didnt want the kids having sticky fingers all over the house and 2. david works on computers all day so it wouldn't be good for him to have sticky fingers either. so if you want them more "bar like" i'd up the honey to bind them together more.
