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!

    Do these need to be stored in the refrigerator or freezer?

He filed for divorce and my whole life was turning apart and i didn't know what to do, he moved out of the house and abandoned me and the kids... my very close friend told me about trying spiritual means to get my husband back and introduced me to a spell caster so i decided to try it. although i didn't believe in all those things then when he did the special prayers and spell, after 2 days, my husband came back and was pleading that he had realized his mistakes I just couldn't believe it, anyway we are back together now and we are happy in case anyone needs help here is his email address; [email protected] His spells is for a better life OR call his number +2349066410185

    I started seeking for help when I was desperate to see the good in my life because I was blinded by deception, expecting loyalty from a man who can’t be honest with himself. For 2 years’ happiness seems overrated while depression and anxiety took over my life.
    One of the hardest thing I did was not not moving on because I trust my marriage will work again someday.
    During the search to regain my sight and improve my marriage, I came across this email [email protected] owned by Dr.Wakina love spell master. Immediately after a successful love spell was cast, my life was given a meaning, my husband changed his attitudes and started focusing on me and the family. He became my everything. We became truthful to ourselves.
    I appreciate the time and effort he (Dr. Wakina) put into giving our lives a meaning.

    After you cut these up into individual portions, do you freeze them or keep them at room temperature or fridge temperature for storage? I'm making a batch for my kiddo to go back to school but I don't want to store them the wrong way :-)
