3 Ingredient Cheerio Bars - Photo

These 3 ingredient cheerio bars are an easy no bake, school safe snack bar! They are super allergy friendly as there are no nuts, eggs, gluten or dairy in them! You will not believe how easy and fast they are to make.

They come together with pantry staples.  Then just microwave the SunButter and honey together for 1 minute, stir, add in the cheerios and stir again.  Then pour into a parchment lined pan and chill – that’s it!!!

SunButter Cheerio Bars are great as a snack, healthy treat, or we have been really loving them as an extra component of our lunch box.

Tips & Adpatations

  • While we have been making these with SunButter, if you don’t have a nut regulation at school or just want to make these at home, feel free to swap the SunButter for your favorite nut butter (peanut, almond, cashew …) or tahini.
  • We have been keeping them simple, but you can feel free to add in extras
    • Chocolate chips
    • Raisins or dried cranberries
    • Sunflower Seeds
    • Hemp Seeds
    • Chia Seeds
    • Sprinkles! 
  • You can also take them up a notch and drizzle chocolate over
  • Swap the cheerios for another small cereal such as Rice Krispies
  • We mostly use the SunButter from Whole Foods or Trader Joes, but we also really enjoy making them with Beyond Equator mixed seed butter or 88 Acres Pumpkin Seed Butter.  We haven’t tried, but I imagine they would be delicious with 88 Acres Chocolate Seed Butter as well.
