Well I have been trying to think of new things to put in my girls’ lunch boxes. They are getting tired of the same things every week.
So I was wanting to make a snack that every grade school kid would be willing to trade for.
It got me thinking what is one cereal that every kid loves (or at least I think every kid loves)….Cheerios. I also wanted to try to make it somewhat healthy but not to the point that they would refuse to eat it.
These Cheerio granola bars were a hit with my kids!!! They loved them and they are easy to grab and go (something I love). These would also be great for those busy mornings when multi-tasking just isn’t enough.
- 1/4 c. butter
- 1/4 c. coconut oil
- 1/3 c. brown sugar
- 1/4 c. corn syrup
- 2 TBS honey
- 3 c. Cheerios
- 1 c. dried cranberries
- 3/4 c. sliced almonds
- 1 c. old fashioned oats
- Line a 13x9 baking pan with parchment paper. Combine Cheerios, cranberries, almonds and oats in a large mixing bowl and set aside. Place butter, oil, sugar, syrup and honey in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to medium low. Boil for 5 minutes. Pour over Cheerio mixture and stir well. Pat in prepared pan. Bake at 325 for 15 minutes. Cool in pan for 30 minutes then remove from pan and cool completely before cutting into bars.
