Servings: 8 servings
Calories: 260kcal


  • 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!
