Summer Peach Cereal Bars

Summer is in full swing here. And my 6 year old is eating me out of house and home. And if you’ve got kids at home you know how expensive it can be to continuously buy snacks. There have been a few boxes of cereal sitting in the pantry that I was afraid I’d wind up throwing away if I didn’t do something with it, so it was time to get creative. I zoomed in on the 1/2 eaten box of Peach Cheerios and while I LOVED them and thought they were delicious, I am not a big cereal person, most of the time we buy cereal for it’s snackability and not as a “breakfast” staple.

With only 4 ingredients, these cereal bars were a cinch to make and disappeared almost over night! Even my husband loved them. And I’ll let you in on a little secret : There may or may not be 1 or 2 hidden in the back of the pantry for later.  I can imagine these being a great spin on a classic cereal bar treat for those awesome bbq’s .

So let’s get to it.
