8-ingredient chocolate-dipped cereal bars made with peanut butter, coconut oil, maple syrup, honey, vanilla and salt.

Ingredients

Scale
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 ½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon coarse salt
  • 3 cups multi-grain Cheerios
  • ⅓ cup dark chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Line a large sheet of parchment paper in an 8x8 baking dish. Set aside.
  2. Place the peanut butter, coconut oil, maple syrup and honey in a large microwaveable bowl. Microwave on high in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until coconut oil is melted, about 1 minute 30 seconds to 2 minutes total. Add the vanilla extract and salt and stir to thoroughly combine.
  3. Add the Cheerios and stir to combine. Transfer to the prepared baking dish and press until mixture is evenly distributed and flat. Refrigerate at least 30 minute or until set. Grab the edges of the parchment paper and transfer the bars to a cutting board. Cut into 18 small squares.
  4. Place the chocolate chips in a small microwaveable bowl. Microwave on high in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until chocolate is melted, about 1 minute 30 seconds. Dip the bottom of each bar in the chocolate and transfer back to the parchment paper. Let sit until hardened, about 30 minutes.
  5. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
