With school back in session, a lot of Moms are looking for school lunch ideas or even after school snack ideas. My Emma might be homeschooled now, but quick and healthy snacks are still a huge part of our day. These peanut butter cheerio snack bars fit right in at our house! They’re whole grain, made with no granulated sugar and are great for a quick breakfast, snack or dessert at lunch.

 

Quick breakfast, after school snack or dessert at lunch, these peanut butter cheerio snack bars are a BIG hit every single time! No granulated sugar, no corn syrup and whole grain in the Cheerios!

 

These will last for about a week after their made if you store them in an airtight container in the fridge. I use these Rubbermaid Lockits for them and they keep just fine. If you’re sending in a school lunch, wrap them in wax paper first then foil so that the foil doesn’t stick to them if they warm up a bit. Keep in mind though that they do have peanut butter in them so be sure to check to make sure your school allows peanut butter.

You Will Need:

  • 3/4 cup Peanut Butter
  • 1/2 cup Honey
  • 3 cups Cheerios in the yellow box

 

Line an 8×8 baking dish with wax paper or foil and set aside. If you use foil, spray it with cooking spray first to help keep your snack bars from sticking to it too much.

Combine the peanut butter and honey in a medium saucepan and cook over medium heat until they are both completely melted and well blended.

Remove from the heat and stir in the Cheerios and mix well. You will want to use either a rubber spatula or a wooden spoon for this since plastic will bend too much to handle how stiff this mixture can be. Mix until the cereal is completely coated.

Once you’ve got the cereal coated well, pour into the baking dish then press evenly to spread the mixture. The mixture can be sticky so you might want to coat your hands with a tiny bit of cooking spray or oil. Don’t use too much though or your bars will have an oily layer on top.

Refrigerate for 1 hour then remove from the baking dish (using the edge of the foil or wax paper to lift) and cut into bars.

Enjoy and store in an airtight container in the fridge for a week or so!
