So, my husband went through a phase when he ate Honey Nut Cheerios everyday for breakfast for years before school. Nowadays he takes his breakfast on the go (oh, adulting and having to run out the door to work). I decided to surprise him though with an amazing and simple treat though to bring back his favorite cereal. Best of all, I didn’t even have to turn my oven on in this heat! Let me tell you, these no bake butterscotch honey cereal bars are everything he could ever want in a snack!
Oh my goodness, these babies were the perfect simple snack! I loved that they didn’t need to bake and I could just quickly put them together. My husband went absolutely nuts for them too. The crunchy cereal with the silky butterscotch and creamy almond butter worked so well. Hope you all enjoy them, let me know what you think in the comments! xo
These are completely amazing and simple no bake butterscotch honey cereal bars that come together quickly! Perfect for summer since the oven isn't needed.
- 1 1/2 cups butterscotch chips
- 1 cup almond butter
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 3 cups Honey Nut Cheerios
- cooking spray for the baking dish
Combine the butterscotch chips, almond butter, honey and coconut oil in a large, heat proof bowl. Get a small pot filled halfway with water on the stove and bring it to a gentle boil. Set the bowl over the pot and melt it all together while you stir it constantly with a heatproof spatula or spoon. When it is completely smooth and melted, take it off the heat and stir the Cheerios in. Pour the mixture into an 8 x 8 baking dish sprayed with cooking spray and make sure it is even. Put it in the refrigerator for an hour to set completely, then cut it into 16 squares. Serve and enjoy!!
