I absolutely love these peanut butter cereal bars. I’ve been making them for years and finally decided that I needed to share them with you all! You can find this recipe probably 100 times online, but I wanted to share it anyways in case you guys hadn’t come across it yet.
With only three ingredients you can make these incredible peanut butter cereal bars that can be served for breakfast, snack, or even as dessert. I’ve taken them to family functions before when I needed to throw something delicious together really quickly and they have always been a hit. The best part is that they can very easily be made gluten free!
I know a lot of people with gluten issues cannot have cheerios, but if you can tolerate cheerios then you can definitely use the plain version of those. Most of the time I use gluten free “Natures Path Organic Whole O’s Cereal” which I have found at my local grocery store and also on Amazon. If you can’t find either of those then you could also use any other kind of neutral flavored gluten free cereal like Chex.
These cereal bars come together in about 8 minutes and pack so much flavor. The sweetness of the honey mixed with the peanut butter and crunch from the cereal is one of my all time favorite combinations. You could also add on to this recipe very easily by adding some chocolate, coconut, or even some ground flax seed for extra fiber.
Do you all have any three ingredient recipes that you just love? I’m always on the hunt for more easy recipes like this one so I can’t wait to hear about it. I hope you all love these peanut butter cereal bars as much as my family does!
