I've been trying to come up with new healthier snacks for the girls. It's been pretty fun. This morning, I let the girls watch an episode of Wonder Pets, and I whipped up these no-bake granola bars. It seriously only took the amount of time it takes a guinea pig, duckling and turtle to save a flamingo to make these. In case you don't use that kind of time comparison, this is really quick.
Here's the recipe:
1/2 cup peanut butter (I used crunchy)
1/3 cup honey
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup crisp rice cereal
1/4 cup raisins
2 handfuls M&Ms
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cocoa
Heat pb, honey and vanilla over medium heat until pb is melted.
mix all other ingredients together in a bowl. When pb mix I'd melted,
dump it over the other stuff. Mix then press into an 8x8 baking dish.
