Honey Nut Cereal Bar

My daughter would love to eat breakfast about 9:30 in the morning. The only problem with this is her school day starts at 7:55. One of these ceral bars and her vitamins might be the only things I get her to eat before rushing out the door. You can toss these in a lunchbox and they're not crumbly so you could even say they are safe for the car....but bring wipes for the sticky hands. I adapted this recipe from Martha Stewart, see the original here: http://www.marthastewart.com/1012977/honey-nut-cereal-bar


  • 4 tablespoons butter or coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • Pinch cinnamon
  • 3 cups Cheerios - Smile Link
  • 3/4 cup roasted sunflower seeds
