Cereal Bars – take two

May 14, 2010

Cereal bar, or egg-less cookie? Either way, these are yummy to east and fast to make. You can customize very easily too, as I have done with the original recipe. Depending on your picky kid’s tastes, add/remove some of the non-essential ingredients below.

Cereal Bars

4 1/2 cups rolled oats — I used 2 cups of rice krispies and 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup butter, softened — I used 1/2 cup margarine and 1/2 cup apple sauce. I also added a heaping spoonful of peanut butter just to shake things up a bit (and add some protein)
1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 cups miniature semisweet chocolate chips — definitely use less of these and you can mix it up with craisins or nuts, or whatever little items your kid likes

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease one 9×13 inch pan.
2. In a large mixing bowl combine the oats, flour, baking soda, vanilla, butter or margarine, honey and brown sugar. Stir in the chocolate chips, raisins, nuts etc.
3. Lightly press mixture into the prepared pan. Bake at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) for 18 to 22 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes then cut into bars. Let bars cool completely in pan before removing or serving.

Yum! How does this compare to cereal bar recipe #1 in your mind/mouth?

    so i made these and they turned out great but almost too sweet. i left out the peanut butter as we have yet to introduce it to carter, i think that would make all the difference. šŸ™‚ i also made the curry and loved it but found it a little too spicy as it made carter cry. i think i will use less curry paste next time. keep the recipes coming!
