Recipe sourced from: The Lazy Dish

Recently, I was looking for a quick portable snack to make to take along for a long road trip. I stumbled across this recipe, and it was perfect! It only had three ingredients, all of which I already had on hand in the pantry. The process is very similar to making Rice Krispies treats. Simply heat the peanut butter and honey on the cook-top until melted. Remove from heat and stir in the Cheerios. Press firmly into the pan and pop it in the fridge for an hour. Cut into 9 large bars.

Now it's time to enjoy all that peanut butter goodness. Try not to eat half the pan by yourself!

Let’s get cooking!



  • 3 cups of Cheerios

  • 3/4 cup of peanut butter

  • 1/2 cup of honey


How to make:

Pro tips:

Spray your fingers, spatula, and measuring cups with cooking spray to keep the honey from sticking.

You can control the amount of sugar in this recipe by using a natural peanut butter that has no sugar added.
