Apple Walnut Breakfast Bars

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by alijen

Easy and delicious breakfast bar (healthy too!). They are no-bake. I usually use Raisin Bran or Bran Flakes for the cereal part, but Corn flakes, cheerios, or even rice krispies would be great. From BHG.

This was fun, easy and very tasty!! I used apple butter and loved it, also used bran flakes and went through the effort of toasting the wheat germ, walnuts and the sunflower seeds which I'm sure made the difference. You can really taste the peanut butter, I almost want to say it's like a peanut butter and jam bar with a tasty crispy and nut texture. I used an all natural smooth peanut butter. These are sweet and delicious. Thanks for posting.
