Unleash the power of your breakfast cereal by trying any of these seven recipes incorporating Cheerios.
1. No-Bake Honey Nut Cheerios Snack Bars
“These fast, easy, bars cost just a fraction of storebought bars to make, they’re healthier, and they’ve got fun, bright colors,” writes Averie Cooks. Chocolate-covered sunflower seeds lend these snack bars their distinctive flavor, while Cheerios, raisins, and nuts combine for a spectacularly satisfying crunch in each bite. The recipe is highly customizable, so toss in a few of your favorite nuts, fruits, or chocolates as desired — and if you’re looking for a sugar fix, use Honey Nut Cheerios in place of original Cheerios. The recipe takes just 15 minutes to make, plus 2 hours for chilling, and makes for a great snack or on-the-go breakfast.
