Recipe: Kashi Peanut Butter Bars

Last Updated on

I just kindof winged it on this recipe! I found a great deal recently on Kashi 7 whole grain Puffs (shown at left) and was looking for a creative way to use them. I wanted something that was similar to a Rice Krispies treat without the marshmallows (ie something slightly healthier!). My kids love anything peanut butter so I figured that was a good place to start! Here is my recipe! They are super easy and only took about 10 minutes from start to finish. Then you just have to let them cool which is the hard part!
Kashi Peanut Butter Bars
1 cup honey
1 1/3 cup peanut butter
1/2 stick butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup chocolate chips
4 cups Kashi 7 Grain Puffs
1 cup oatmeal
  1. Spray a 13 x 9 inch pan with PAM or grease with butter
  2. In a large sauce pan melt the butter, honey and peanut butter. Bring to a boil and simmer 3 minutes
  3. Remove from heat and add the vanilla
  4. Dump in remaining ingredients (coconut, oatmeal, chococolate chips, and Kashi cereal)
  5. Stir until well blended
  6. Dump into the 13 x 9 inch pan and press down evenly (best done, I think, with some waxed paper!)
  7. Let cool and cut into bars
