1 Minute, No Bake, Cereal Bar

My pantry is running very low on baking supplies, but I had a box of raisin-bran cereal that had too many raisins that I wanted to use up. So, I chose to adapt my other recipe: 1 Minute, No Bake, Cocoa Delicacy using what I had on hand. I think this turned out really nice and entirely different from the original version. I used peanut-hazelnut butter instead of peanut butter.

Made as directed using 1 1/2 c of crushed raisin bran cereal. Tastes great and was surpisingly popular with the family. Only issue I had was this is so moist that it never sets up into bars that can be cut or served. After it set overnight, I ended up rolling into balls. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for PAC Spring 2009.

So good! I used flaxseed instead of wheat germ and honey vanilla almond milk. I wasn't expecting to enjoy them this much! Thank you!
