These are a great snack or breakfast on the run. I love that the peanut butter sneaks some protein into their tummies early in the morning. I think you'll agree with me that these taste better than they look- give them a try!
GF Breakfast Bars!
1/3 c. honey
1/3 c. brown sugar (can sub more honey if you'd prefer)
1 1/2 c. peanut butter (I used JIF)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon (I used McCormick)
5 cups gluten free chex type cereal (I used corn, but rice would be fine), crushed after measuring
6 oz dried cranberries (I used Craisins, you can also sub in raisins)
Measure the 5 cups of cereal into a bowl and crush down (I use the bottom of a cup and smush until no whole pieces remain) and set aside. Spray/grease an 8x8 pan lightly with oil & set aside. You can melt the sweeteners and peanut butter gently in a saucepan or in the microwave (stirring every 30 seconds) until the brown sugar is dissolved. Then stir the cinnamon into the peanut butter mixture & pour over top of crushed cereal. Dump in cranberries & mix thoroughly until cereal is well coated. Transfer to prepared 8x8 pan and press down (I rub a bit of coconut oil on the bottom of a cup or measuring cup to use to push down hard, you want to pack the bars firmly). Refrigerate until set (maybe an hour? we usually break into them early!).
