Right after chocolate, strawberry is my favorite flavor combo with peanut butter. Which is why we never have grape jelly in our house. Ew. We are a strawberry jelly family!
Dylan has been bugging me for a fun cereal for a while now. When Dan goes grocery shopping, he picks up “fun” cereal. I come home with Costco sized boxes of Cheerios, tell him to add a banana and call it a day. He also gets fun cereal at Grandma’s house. So I was becoming the lame one.
I picked up Fruit Loops and Berry Kix on my last grocery trip and Dylan literally told me I was the best mom ever.
We are short on snack ideas around here. So I had wanted to make a cereal bite thing (yes, that’s the official term) and I had it on my list to make. But when I saw the Berry Kix on my counter, I got a wonderful idea. Peanut butter and jelly breakfast (or snack) bars!
These are so good. Dylan LOVED them (again, I got dubbed the Best Mom Ever) and of course, they are very easy to make. Almost like making Rice Krispie Treats. You melt the peanut butter, honey and vanilla in the microwave and then dump in the cereal.
Place them in a baking dish lined with foil and sprayed with non stick cooking spray and pop them in the fridge. Take them out when they’re set and slice them up.
Dan even grabbed one (asking me first – life of a blogger’s husband. haha) last night and said they were delicious.
Definitely keeping them around for snack and breakfast ideas!
