5 Ingredient Cereal Bars

We've been making "O" Cookies as long as I can remember, and my kids have been obsessed with them for just as long. 

I thought I'd play with other cereals in place of our favorite Trader Joe's O's. 5 Ingredient Cereal Bars are great with any of your favorite cereals, but our current obsession is to use a mixture of cereals!

Using a mixture of different cereals adds interesting textures and the kids have fun picking out and naming the different pieces they find. I've made mine with almond butter in this video because that's what we always have on hand, but you can use any smooth nut or seed butter. 

We'll be headed back to school in a few weeks, and I can guarantee these cereal bars will be making an appearance in the lunch box as well as on the breakfast table. What cereal will you use for your cereal bars?! Let me know in the comments below!

    Can I use anything in place of the coconut oil? Could I just leave it out?

    How long will these last in the fridge? In the freezer? Also, any options for using less sweetener?

    Hey everyone
    I'm so excited. My ex-boyfriend is back after few months of breakup, I’m extremely happy that will are living together again. My boyfriend of 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.
    I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 17 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again...
    All thanks to Dr Ahmed if you have any marital, relationship or divorces problem contact Dr Ahmed now and I guarantee you that he will help you.
    Here’s his contact.
