Super-Easy Cereal Bars

Meet guest poster Dana from The Homesteading Housewife: YOU might know Dana from her appearance on Wife Swap but she also happens to be a great cook!

I run our small family farm almost by myself because the Man-of-My-Dreams is working out of state.  There is always something going on.  I have 5 kids.  I have 5 hungry kids!  So I am always thrilled when I can make something quick and easy that my kids actually all love!

These Cereal Bars fit the bill!  They are quick and easy, and super tasty.  What kid doesn’t love toasted oat ring cereal?  Toss in some chocolate and peanut butter and you can’t go wrong!
