2/3 cup creamy peanut butter

3 TBSP maple syrup

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1 cup Simply Nature Vanilla Bean Oats and Grain cereal

1/3 cup unsweetened flaked coconut

1 TBSP black chia seeds

2 TBSP mini chocolate chips

Line a 4.5″ x 8.5″ loaf pan with wax paper.¬†Mix the PB, maple syrup, vanilla and honey together in a bowl, then add the cereal, coconut chia seeds and chocolate chips. Mix well and press evenly into the lined loaf pan. Chill in the refrigerator a couple hours. Remove from pan, cut across into bars and store in the refrigerator.

Yield: 5 bars or 10 squares :)

Note: This could be made with sunflower seed butter or another nut butter. If using almond butter, decrease to 1/2 cup since it is thinner than PB. Or just add more cereal.
