Cereal Breakfast Bars

This is quick, easy and really yummy!  Definitely worth making at least once :)

Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 5 minutes
Difficulty: Easy

1/2 c. natural peanut butter
1/2 c. sugar (any kind will work)
1/2 c. honey ( if using agave honey cut the quantity in half)
1/2c. cranberries or raisins
1/4 c. ground flax seed
1/2 c. roasted peanuts
3 cups of your favorite cereal - I used plain cheerios

Grease 13x9 pan.  Add dry ingredients to pan and mix together.  In a medium sauce pan, melt sugar, honey and peanut butter together over medium/high heat.  Be careful to not burn, stir constantly!  Just when it starts to boil remove from heat and carefully pour over cereal mixture.  Combine well and press into pan.

Let cool and cut into bars.  Enjoy!

This recipe is easy to change around.  Add whatever you have to mix it up.  Almonds, sunflower seeds, M&M's...whatever you can find!  Share you variation of this with us.
