In the past few months that I’ve been blogging, I’ve done biscuit bars, I’ve done oat bars, I’ve got drunk at many bars, and now I present to you, no-bake breakfast cereal bars.
These breakfast cereal bars are one of the easiest snacks to make at home. They’re essentially a mixture of different breakfast cereals and some yummy bits and pieces, all blended together to form a sticky but delicious mulch. This mulch is packed tightly into a baking dish and then put in the fridge to set for a few hours. And that’s it. A little bit of mess, but no fuss, and no baking!
They’re great as a snack-on-the-go, an afternoon treat or even as a light breakfast to go with your morning coffee. They can also be easily customised depending on what you have in the pantry. I used Weet-Bix, granola, corn flakes and rolled oats, but you can add other cereals like Rice Krispies, Otees, Milo Cereal, bran flakes or chocolate clusters. These no-bake breakfast bars also contain peanut butter, shredded coconut, mixed nuts and raisins, but you can substitute these with dried fruits, chocolate chips, sesame or pumpkin seeds, or anything else that takes your fancy.
