  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 1/2 cups dry cereal


  • Line a 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper and set aside. 
  • Combine the peanut butter and honey in a medium size sauce pan. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
  • Add in the dry cereal and stir until completely coated. Then press into the lined pan. Use a piece of parchment paper to press firmly down on the bars. 
  • Refrigerate bars for one hour, or until ready to serve.


These cereal bars are best kept chilled in the refrigerator to keep shape.
