A lot of cereal bars get eaten in our house. I would rather my little ones ate nice snacks and not some additive bar with a bit of cereal in it, which is why I used to buy organic children’s bars (looking at their price, you would think they have gold leaf in them!). Not only were they expensive, but I also found them rather disgusting when I tried them. My children like them, but I would never eat them, so I thought I would try to make cereal bars myself.
I found a few recipes and decided to adapt one from Lauren’s latest, as it was by far the quickest, and did not require baking. I have been making them with the children, changing something here, something here for the past nine months or so and we all love them.
Jumpy cannot eat them because of the dairy in them, but Crevette has them in his lunchbox, Beanie eats them all at any time of the day, I have them with a cup of tea after putting the little ones to bed, hubby takes them to work as a snack and we sometimes have them for dessert (why not, hey!).
I think I finally got it absolutely perfect for us a couple of months ago, and here they are…. white chocolate and dried cranberries cereal bars.
They are tasty, take minutes to make, you can keep them in a sealed container for a few days and you can freeze them for days when you have nothing to put in a lunchbox (yours or the kids’).
You can swap the white chocolate and cranberries for whatever you fancy. I did try a triple chocolate and marshmallow combination that was rather moreish!
