Expert Tips

To make bars more festive, sprinkle with seasonal decorative sprinkles.

Traveling with children can be a challenge. Whether it is a short car ride or a long flight on an airplane, I always have to be prepared with snacks that can keep them full until the next opportunity for a meal. So I've decided to create my own granola bars with Cheerios™ and top them with some of our favorite ingredients. These sweet bars can be sliced in bite-size pieces or divided in individual pieces for an energizing treat!

Directions

  • 1 In a large bowl combine oatmeal, peanuts, and Cheerios™. Mix well with hands or a wooden spoon.
  • 2 In a separate large bowl, place peanut butter, sugar, and honey. Heat in the microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir in vanilla and cinnamon. Place in microwave for another minute and stir until well mixed.
  • 3 Pour peanut butter mixture on cereal mixture and stir until combined. On a parchment-paper lined 8 x 8-inch baking pan, pour mixture and press down with a large spoon to form an even layer. Top with chocolate chips and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until set.
  • 4 Peel off parchment paper and slice in bars.
