Looking for cereal bar recipes that dont contain rice crispies
 
Does anybody have recipes for cereal bars that contain different cereals other than rice crispies? My son is begging me to buy the cereal bars that are advertised on tv but I refuse to pay an outrageous price for them. He doesnt like rice crispy cereal so those are out.
Ive done a search for some recipes but most contain p-nut butter and hes not crazy about that either--will eat sometimes though.

Any ideas?


Thanks,
Tami :daisy:

I like to use cornflakes if I don't have rice crispies. Other cereals such as crispix also work well, even if you have to crush them slightly. Be daring and experiment. :)
The following recipe is not quite a cereal bar, but my family love it in their packed lunches.

Muesli Slice
125g butter or margarine
½ cup honey
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 ½ cups coconut
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup sultanas
½ cup wholemeal self-raising flour
Combine butter, honey and sugar in a pan, stir over low heat, without boiling, until butter has melted and sugar is dissolved. Combine remaining ingredients in a large bowl, mix well. Press mixture into a greased 19cm x 29cm baking tin. Bake at 180 degrees centigrade (350f) for about 20 minutes. Cool in pan before cutting into slices.

I have used rice puffs instead of rice crispies. I think they are softer. You can use cheerios. Try putting m and m's in them.
MMMMM........ all this talk makes me want some. I think I head for town soon and go get ingredients to make some. ^^

I make rice krispie treats with all kinds of cereals. Fruit loops, cocoa pebbles, cinnamon cereal, cocoa puffs, corn flakes...any kind. Just use the basic rice krispie recipe and add the other cereal instead. Sometimes the cereal amount needs to be adjusted. Hope that helps!

You could make your own granola bars as well using oatmeal and corn syurp, raisins, nuts, cinnamon if you wish. Please PM me if you need the recipe...I have to look it up!

Petunia 06-07-2003 01:34 PM

Hi,
You can also use popcorn in place of cereal. Any hardy cereal will work well.

:) There was a very good one on the Cheerios box, and I'm sure if you go to bettycrocker.com and search their recipes you will find it. Good luck!:-D

Other Cereal
 
I see by the posts that I have been beaten to the punch here. I love cornflakes with marshmallows. I make wreaths with them. A little green tint in the marshmallow and red hots for the holly. A little sticky, but fun. Cheerios, fruit loops, corn chex, name it it can be used with marshmallows. The possibilities are endless.
Good luck choosing. :daisy:

bbkimberly 06-08-2003 01:30 AM

I got online somewhere (can't remember where) a recipe for a knockoff of the nutrigrain bars.......my kids (and a few friends of mine) love it:) if you are interested email me and i will give you the recipe^^

musicmom1 06-08-2003 04:53 AM

Ok, Here is one recipe... I was wrong about the corn syurp...it was Honey!
1/2 c Honey
1 t. Vanilla
3/4 cup melted margarine

4 c. regular oats
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 c. chopped nuts
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. raisins
1/2 c. coconut
M&M's, chocolate chips, candy, as desired

Mix dry ingredients together and place in decorative baggy. Attach the following label: Add 3/4 c. melted margarine, 1/2 c. honey, and 1 t. vanilla. Spread onto sprayed baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees F. for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool. Cut into bars.

You can always keep it on a baking sheet, add 1/2 cup more of oatmeal and the chop it up for a trail mix.
My little ones like to help with this. You can mix and match lots of things....like dried fruit, other cereal, etc.!

Hope this helps!

i use fruity pebbles put them in muffin tins let them cool then put frosting and sprinkles on them. i made for the kids party at school and they went over well.

MKS 06-09-2003 07:52 AM

Oh, yeah, I made them with fruity pebbles too. I like the muffin tin idea! Last night I thought of indoor smores. My dss loves these. The recipe was on the Graham Cereal box. Also if you want to search, I saw Martha Stewart make an mega recipe one time a long time ago. It had fruit loop, cap'n crunch & several others too.

Cereal Bars
 
I recently picked up this recipe from another e-letter site. It is surprisingly good and filling:

Breakfast/Energy Bars

2 bananas
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup molasses
1 T cornstarch
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 cup water
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cloves
generous handful each of raisins, chopped walnuts, chopped pecans, sunflower seeds, chopped prunes, chopped almonds, or whatever else you may have at hand
3 cups quick oats

Mix bananas, molasses, honey, cornstarch, applesauce, water, and vanilla. Stir in remaining ingredients, leaving the oats and seeds/nuts until the end.

Lightly spray cookie sheet with non-stick vegetable spray.

Form dough into 16 balls, and flatten and shape into large, round cookies. Dough will be grainy, not smooth like batter.

Bake for 12-15 minutes in a 350 degree oven until bottoms are lightly browned and cookie holds together. Cool, and enjoy.

The dough can also be pressed into a shallow cookie pan, baked, and cut into cereal bars.

Hi! the muffin tins reminded of me of a snack the kids used to take to school. I would make any kind of cereal snack like rice krispie treats. I would then take dixie cups that I sprayed with Pam. I would press the cereal mixture in the cup and stick a popcicle stick in the center of it. When the mixture cooled, I would pull the snack out and voila, a rice krispie treat pop. The kids loved them! You could also put m and m's in the cereal mixture, but I found that they melt and make a mess.

kellyandkids 06-12-2003 07:51 PM

OK someone has already pulled these GREAT recipes into a real file. Can I have a copy via PM PLEASE??

All I can add is to follow Martha Stewart and balance the sweet with salt if your are following the regualr recipe. And mini marshmellows melt more evenly that big guys.

ajrsmom 06-12-2003 09:26 PM

Thank you everyone for the yummy recipes!! Today he has decided that he likes p-nut butter in stuff ....go figure :rolleyes:

I cant wait to try some of these. The best part is that he can help to make them. He should love that since he has to share the limelight with his baby sister now, the focus can be on him with this! :)




Kelly, Did someone send you a PM with the recipes yet? If not, let me know and I will send them to you or you can send a PM to yourself and get them that way too. Just give me a yell and Ill send them to ya. :daisy:

I have used the basic rice krispie treat recipe and just used whatever cereal I had on hand-corn flakes(these make the cutest christmas wreaths when topped with sprinkles, colored sugar and/or red hots), cheerios---even sugar sweetened cereals work. Great way to use up cereal that is getting stale.
