Healthy, Natural Cereal Bar

Submitted by: TJEDOCK3875

Introduction

These are soooo delicious! Get rave reviews every time i make them. Can adjust ingredients to your individual tastes. Use any dried fruit (the cherries give a nice sweet tang), can use almond butter instead of peanut butter, but i find the peanut butter offers more flavor. and any nut instead of walnuts. have fun with them... i did! *note, brown rice syrup is a mild binding sweetener, and can be found in natural food markets.* (a friend subbed agave nectar and were WAY too sweet!)

  • Love it!!! I used Agave syrup and 2 T. honey (because it needed more liquid) with almond butter. Also I had toasted and salted pumpkin seeds and used Ezekial 4:9 almond cereal. The bars are so delicious and the cereal I used is a bit more crunchy, which I love. - 7/18/11
