Cereal and Milk Bars

May 05

Often times in the morning, I find that my son and I are grabbing breakfast on the road.    This poses a problem because milk doesn’t hold well in the car and I like my coffee dark.  This leaves us without a crucial part of our morning meals.  I am constantly looking for ways to ensure that we are getting daily calcium, I decided to do some experimenting this weekend.  These bars turned out great…Throw in your favorite fruit or fruit juice and you have a solid start to the day!

Cereal and Milk Bars

  • 4 Tbsp Butter or Margarine
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 2 bags marshmallows
  • 1.5 cups instant nonfat dry milk
  • 1/2 cup PB2 powder (optional….it’s a dried form of peanut butter, full flavor, low fat)
  • 8 cups toasted oats cereal (I used Cheerios)

Prepare pan by spraying with cooking spray.  In large microwave safe bowl, combine marshmallows, butter, vanilla, and water.  Microwave for 45 seconds at a time, stirring in between until smooth.  (about 2-3 minutes total)  Stir in powdered milk and PB2 if desired.  Add cereal and stir until coated.  Using greased fingers, press cereal mixture into pan.  Let cool, cut and enjoy!
