Double Peanut Bars Recipe

Publisher Photo
These sweet no-bake snacks are great energy bars. Any dried fruit works well, but I prefer cranberries. Grain cereals, plus honey, peanuts and peanut butter make the bars popular at my house. -Kim Rocker of LaGrange, Georgia

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 5, 2014

"I wanted to try this recipe to see if my kids would enjoy it as a more nutritious snack alternative and they loved them! The recipe was very easy and quick to make and tastes delicious. We'll be making these again!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 7, 2012

"My husband has high blood pressure and needed to reduce sodium. I replaced his beloved Pop Tarts with these bars and he loves them. I make them at least twice a month."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 17, 2011

"Gosh, these bars are just amazing. And as a Registered Dietitian, I give them 2 thumbs up as the perfect snack (high fiber, whole grain, good unsaturated fats, and protein). I used a Fiber One cereal with wheaties-like cereal, clusters, and raisins. I added more raisins as my dried mixed fruit and used natural peanut butter. I might lessen the brown sugar next time just to reduce calories from added sugar. I am fully confident that they will still be amazing."
