No-Bake Cranberry White Chocolate Cereal Bars

No-Bake Cranberry White Chocolate Cereal Bars. This 6 inredient recipe for Grape-Nut bars is a Delicious and Easy way to Enjoy a Healthy breakfast on The Go

As the holidays quickly approach and my house fills up with Christmas cookies I have the hardest time controlling myself.  I am totally guilty of sneaking a cookie or two (…or three… or four 😉 ) for breakfast…  I’m pretty much a real life cookie monster! 😛  So this year, instead of feeling guilty all day I decided to come up with a healthier, quick and tasty breakfast option to start my day off on the right foot.  Rather than indulging in cookies for breakfast I have a stash of no-bake cranberry white chocolate cereal bars calling my name.

These are SO easy to make and just as satisfying as a dessert.  Plus, what’s better than cranberry white chocolate at this time of the year?? It’s definitely the perfect winter breakfast treat!  I started to make a big batch of these cereal bars at the beginning of the week and wrap them up individually so they’re super easy to grab and go during the week.

I wanted to keep my breakfast semi-healthy since I know I’ll be eating my fair share of sweets later in the day during the holiday season. 😉  So I headed to Target and grabbed a box of Grape Nuts cereal which is power-packed with nutrition and gives my cereal bars the perfect crunch.

Other than the Grape Nuts cereal, these no-bake cranberry white chocolate cereal bars only have five ingredients: honey, peanut butter, dried cranberries, quick oatmeal and white chocolate chips.

First, combine your Grape Nuts cereal, oats, and cranberries into a large bowl.  Next, combine the honey and peanut butter in a large saucepan over medium heat.  Cook for about one minute (or until melted and combined) and make sure you are stirring CONSTANTLY!

Remove the mixture from heat and mix in with the cereal + oats + fruit mixture.  Mix it up well and spread into a greased 9×13 baking pan.  Use parchment paper to flatten the mixture and press into the pan.  Add a handful of cranberries to decorate then melt the white chocolate in the microwave and drizzle over top.

Place the pan into the refrigerator for about 30 minutes or until cool.  I usually make mine at night and let them sit in the refrigerator overnight but if you’re in a hurry you can also stick them in the freezer so they don’t fall apart.  Once the cereal bars are cooled, pull them out and cut up into bars to enjoy!

Not only do these taste heavenly but they’re a good option for breakfast on the go!  You’re getting important nutrients from the Grape Nuts, protein and healthy fat from the peanut butter and using honey instead of corn syrup.  These no-bake cranberry white chocolate cereal bars are definitely going to become a holiday season tradition in my house!
