Cheerio Bars

I am definitely not mom-of-the-year material.  It is a RARE occasion when I have an after school snack ready and waiting for my kiddo when he gets off the bus.  Here is my one attempt in many months to do so!  

Both the boys LOVED these, and they took minutes to make.  I can do this again ;)

Cheerio Bars

1/2 cup crunchy natural peanut butter, well-stirred
1/2 cup honey
3 cups toasted whole grain oats cereal (Cheerios)

Line an 8 x 8 inch square pan with parchment.

Combine peanut butter & honey in a large saucepan and set over medium heat. Heat until mixture just starts to simmer, about 2-3 minutes, stirring. Remove from heat and stir until mixture is well-combined.

Stir in cereal until evenly coated. Pour mixture into prepared pan, cover with parchment, and press firmly. (Edited to add: A pastry roller will help to firmly and evenly pack down the mixture so the bars hold their shape). Chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Cut into bars. Store individually wrapped in the refrigerator.
