    Just Mandy's Note:

    Made this up to give my toddler a healthy and yummy snack--and to use up some of the millions of Cheerios we seem to always have in the pantry! Great to take to play groups, no eggs or honey so even young babies can share. Substitute any cereal you want!

      So yummy! :) I doubled the recipe (since i have 4 boys), used honey nut cheerios, and i pressed the mixture into cupcake pans (about half full). It made about 36 snacks. Thanks for the recipe!

      Wow! These are good! I was a little skeptical while I was making them, I just knew that they would turn out to be a pile of mush, but they didn't!! It was a perfect blend of cereal and fruit!! Thanks for a great recipe that is an unlikely one! I followed the recipe pretty much - used plain Cheerios and multi-grain Cheerios; raisins and dried berries; self-rising flour (because that's the only kind I ever buy) and natural applesauce. Both of my kids even liked this! Okay, well picky 3-year-old just ate the Cheerios out of it, but hey. :)

      I was looking for a quick and easy snack bar to make for my toddler and this worked nicely. I used Cheerios and a mix of raisins and craisins. I liked that this used applesauce and just a little brown sugar for sweetness, since other cereal bar recipes used corn syrup. I used a little less than the 3/4 cup of whole wheat flour. The result was a soft and somewhat chewy bar, after baking in my 8x8 pan for about 25 minutes. These probably won't be a go-to snack, but I'll definitely try them again the next time I don't feel like fussing with muffin tins and need a quick baking project. Next time I'll try 3/4 cup of dried fruit since 1 cup seemed like a little too much.
