I also cut back on the sugar a bit and it was plenty sweet. Great for gluten free people

We love anything with peanut butter so when I had an over purchased Cheerios I looked for a recipe involving both. This was a hit! I doubled the recipe. We have now made these a number of times, sometimes adding the peanuts other times omitting them and upping the cereal measurement. Sometimes used creamy peanut butter, sometimes using crunchy. All variations were equally loved. In my house there was no need to store in fridge... they didn't last that long!

These are so good. I followed others advice and cut the sugar in half. Didn't miss it at all. Will definitely make these again. And I stored in the fridge so they stayed fresh longer.

These bars are amazing –they are not sticky when you eat them!! I cut the sugar in half and added a teaspoon of sunflower oil because I was using natural peanut butter that seemed a bit dry. I also made a version with almond butter and it turned out great. These are my new “rice crispie treats” and my kids all love them. I will probably let them have some for breakfast when we need something quick in the car.

I double everything but the sugar, then use a 9 x 9 cake pan and they turn out perfect.

This recipe was awesome! Was looking for something other than the same old snack mix and this is it! I used Splenda and reduced fat PB and no one could tell! Quick, easy, has whole grains, protien and fiber!

YUM!! My husband's favorite cereal is Cheerios - he's eaten Cheerios all the 34 years we've been married. This recipe is a keeper for sure!!Thank you.
