Easy no-bake breakfast bars

Makes 16 servings


  • 1 cup original Cheerios cereal
  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats, dry
  • ½ cup whole flaxseeds
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips
  • ½ cup honey
  • ¾ cup creamy peanut butter
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract


In a microwave-safe bowl, combine honey, vanilla extract and peanut butter. Microwave on high for 30 seconds to melt the peanut butter so you can stir together. Stir in cheerios, oats, flaxseeds and chocolate chips.

Line an 8x8 inch baking dish with nonstick foil for easy clean-up. Press mixture into the pan evenly. Refrigerate for an hour to harden. Cut into 16 bars. Wrap individually for an easy on-the-go breakfast or snack!

Note: You can substitute your favorite dried fruit in place of the chocolate chips (e.g. raisins, dried cranberries, etc.)
