Better-than-store-bought bars

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


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


  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.
