    Better-than-store-bought bar

    This slightly sweetened snack will satisfy your sweet tooth and the 3 grams of fiber in each bar will satisfy your hunger too!

    Ingredients

    1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
    1/4 cup honey
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    3 cups toasted whole-grain oat cereal

    Directions

    1. Line an 8-by-8-inch baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
    2. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine peanut butter, honey and cinnamon. Stir. Microwave on high in 20-second intervals, stirring in between, until peanut butter is softened and mixture is well-mixed.
    3. Place the cereal in a large bowl. Pour peanut butter mixture (made in step 2) over the cereal. Stir until combined.
    4. Pour peanut butter-cereal mixture (made in step 3) into the prepared baking pan. Press mixture with a spatula to spread out evenly.
    5. Cover and place in the refrigerator to chill for 1 hour.
    6. Cut into 6 bars and serve.
