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 choose to eat them, so I thought I would try to make our own cereal bars.
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. I finally got our white chocolate and cranberry cereal bar recipe absolutely perfect recently.
Crevette has them in his lunchbox, Beanie eats them as a mid-afternoon afternoon treat, I have them with a cup of tea, hubby takes them to work as a snack and we sometimes have them for dessert (why not, hey!)
They are tasty and take minutes to make. You can keep them at room temperature in a sealed container for a few days or freeze them for 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 tried a triple chocolate and marshmallow combination that was rather moreish!
