Peanut Butter Honey Cereal Bars
First things first...thank you all for your kind words about the pie and finding a way to overcome fears. You have no idea how much it means to me to have your support. I am really working on allowing myself to be "me" this year. I guess, I am finally old enough to be allowed to do that. So, thank you all so much!

Yesterday flew by for me. The illustrator walked downstairs at 8:20am and was blown away by the mess I had already created in the kitchen. By this time, I had already worked out, made pancakes for one boy, made an over easy egg with toast for the other boy and put a recipe together in the crockpot for a client.

Yeah, it looked like a cartoon mess in the kitchen. No worries, I tackled the mess and created a great recipe for my client!

Since everything was crazy around here yesterday, I kept other things a little more simple. The boys wanted a treat after dinner so I threw together a little peanut butter and honey cereal bar.

The recipe was quick easy and who doesn't love the peanut butter honey combination? Well, except vegans, but I am sure you can use agave here too.

The boys have been on an ice cream kick lately.  I have no idea how anyone could eat anything that cold while it is so cold outside. Although, once I did one for them, I had to have one while I sat with my back almost in the fireplace.  I love melted peanut butter on vanilla "ice cream" and the honey gets all thick and good!

Peanut Butter Honey Cereal Bars

6 cups corn flake cereal (I used gluten free)
2/3 cup honey
2/3 cups natural peanut butter

Microwave the peanut butter and honey for 1 minute 30 seconds until it is melted and liquid. Add the cereal and stir to coat well. Place in an 8x8 square dish that has been sprayed with a little nonstick spray. Using wax or parchment paper, firmly press the cereal in the pan so it all comes together tightly. Refrigerate until set. 

***These set up in the fridge, but if you want a firmer bar, you should add 1 TBSP flax meal to the peanut butter mixture and bake them for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

Now, it's time to tackle Thursday!  It is going to be crazy, but for now, the sun is shining so I feel a little more excited about tackling my to do list! Does the weather effect you? I need sunshine occasionally. It seems like it has been so gray lately.  I hope you all have a great day!
