3-ingredient Cereal Treats

by | Recipes and Meal Ideas

We recently made these for a health fair held for City of Durham employees. We were honored to be there and meet so many wonderful people! We got rave reviews on these treats so we thought we’d share with everyone here. I didn’t snap a photo of my own and I owe full credit for the photos in this post to  www.thebigmansworld.com. This recipe was modified from one on their beautiful site.

3-ingredient Cereal Treats

These are a fun alternative to your typical Rice Krispy treats. The nut butter adds healthy fats and protein, while the whole grain cereal adds more fiber than the rice cereal. Using the Truvia Nectar can help you save on calories and sugar.

  • 2 cups whole grain cereal (such as multi-grain cheerios)
  • 1/3 cup honey or Truvia Nectar (Nectar is sweeter so you will use less)
  • 1/3 cup natural nut butter (almond butter or peanut butter)
  1. On stove top, melt honey or Truvia Nectar and nut butter over low-medium heat in a sauce pan.
  2. Add the cereal and stir until combined.
  3. Press and flatten mixture into pan.
  4. Refrigerate for 15 minutes or until well set.
  5. Cut into 10 squares/bars.
