My kids have never been huge fans of granola bars or any thing like them for that matter! My husband is an avid bowhunter so during hunting season he is always stocking up on his favorite bars. He is a huge fan of Clif bars! Right before hunting season started Naturebox sent me a package and boy was my husband happy! These type of snacks are right up his alley! He grabbed a few things that caught his eye and I did the same thing. I did get to try a little of each of his, but I told him I had a few recipes up my sleeve for these “Cherry Berry Bonanza” I have used them in salads, oatmeal, ate them plain, and this new recipe! Wow are they good! These bars were gobbled up by my 5 and 3 year old and have become the “snack” that my son takes to Kindergarten with him.
Our family has loved our Naturebox! The healthy snack options have not only been healthy, but also yummy and convenient! These snacks are all good enough on their own, but it was extra fun creating a new recipe with them!
1 1/4 cup brown rice cereal
1 cup uncooked quick-cooking oats
1 Tablespoon (heaping) ground flaxseed
1/4 cup Naturebox Cherry Berry Bonanza
1/4 cup almond, sliced and crumbled up
1/3 cup agave nectar
1/2 cup Peanut Butter & Co “White Chocolate Wonderful”
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
Spray 9×9 pan with cooking spray and then set aside. Combine rice cereal, oats, flaxseed, Cherry Berry Bonanza, and almond in large bowl. Over low-medium heat place agave nectar and white chocolate wonder in a small sauce pan. Heat until melted. Remove from heat and then add vanilla and cinnamon. Pour mixture over the cereal mixture and combine with a wooden spoon. Combine very well and then pour into 9×9 pan. Using wax paper press mixture down firmly. Set pan aside and let cool for about 10 minutes. Then cover and place in fridge for 30 more minutes to set up. Cut into bars. Wrap bars in plastic wrap and store in fridge.
*Tip: if you do not have wax paper, spray one side of siran wrap with cooking spray and use the sprayed side to press down on the pan*
