This easy Peanut Butter S’mores Cereal Bars recipe lets you skip the prepackaged cereal bars and make your own! Great for a quick breakfast or snack, these cereal bars give you a wholesome option to feed your family!
Schools have started. Apples are being harvested. Thanksgiving decorations are out in stores. And some trees around our house are already starting to turn color!
But summer isn’t over yet! And we had to get one more s’mores recipe in before it turns to all things apple, maple, and pumpkin.
More specifically, a s’mores recipe that you don’t have to feel bad about enjoying and that doesn’t require a lot of time to throw together.
Peanut butter s’mores cereal bars! Based off of our Chocolate Peanut Butter Honey Oat Cereal Bars, this s’mores variation is a great way to savor the last days of summer.
The base of these easy bars is oat cereal and crushed graham cracker pieces. Mini marshmallows and chocolate chips combine with the graham cracker pieces to give you the classic, gooey s’mores combination.
And since we love peanut butter with our s’mores around here, it only seemed natural to add in peanut butter to these cereal bars, too! A few more graham cracker pieces and chocolate chips combine with some marshmallow bits to round out the s’mores flavor.
We found ourselves grabbing one for a quick snack after working out or snitching one in the afternoon when we wanted something a little sweet. Easy, versatile, delicious!
Tips for making Peanut Butter S’mores Cereal Bars
- Make sure to stir constantly while the peanut butter honey mixture is boiling. The mixture will scorch if it is left alone.
- To avoid messy, sticky hands when pressing the mixture into the prepared pan, use the bottom of a glass or a spatula. I find that covering the bottom of a glass with some parchment paper and then using the glass works well to avoid any sticky messes.
- Use whatever kind of chocolate chips you like best! We prefer using semi-sweet or dark chocolate, but if you want the classic s’mores combination with milk chocolate, go for it!
