Milk and Cereal Bars

Super yummy and very versatile! You can use whatever cereal you like! I got this recipe from a post on Cafemom so I dont know where the original came from, but I modified it slightly to my liking.

Make them gluten free with Chex or another GF cereal and sorghum GF oat or any GF  flour mix you like!

5 cups cereal...I used Peanut Butter Cheerios in this one
1/2 cup butter, melted
2/3 cup nut or seed butter  (I used peanut butter, almond or sunflower butter or the like would work too)
1/2 cup honey
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp cinnamon
(add in 1 tsp xanthan gum if using GF flour)

1 1/2 cups plain or vanilla greek yogurt
2 eggs
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup sugar(more or less to taste, omit if using flavored yogurt)

Lightly grease a 9 x 13 pan and preheat oven to 350

In a large bowl mix the butter, peanut butter, honey , flour and cinnamon.

Add the cereal and toss until well combined.

In another bowl mix the filling ingredients until well combined.

Take 1/2 of the cereal mixture and press it evenly into the bottom of the greased 9  x 13 pan.

Pour yogurt mixture over the cereal.

Evenly sprinkle remaining cereal over the top and press in gently.

Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes, uncover and cook 10-15 more until browned and the center is set.

Allow to cool completely before slicing.

 Store in air tight container in the fridge.
