First Day of School Made Easier with No Bake Cereal Bars
Servings: 8 servings
- 3 cups original cheerios
- 1/2 cup almonds
- 1/2 cup coconut
- 1 cup maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
Combine Cheerios, almonds and coconut in a bowl. In a saucepan, combine maple syrup, almond extract and coconut oil. Bring to a boil, and continue on a boil 8- 10 minutes. Pour over cereal mixture and mix thoroughly. Spread into an 8X8 pan, lined with parchment paper or wax paper. Chill in the fridge until cereal bars get crunchy.
- This recipe is finicky! There is a point of sugar boiling that goes from chewy to crunchy, to crumbly. Getting the right texture might take practice. If this recipe is a fail as a bar, it's still SUPER YUMMY as a snack mix!
