These no bake peanut butter cereal bites are sweet, crunchy, and a perfect breakfast or snack option when you’re on the go! My kids and I love them.
If you’re a busy mom like me you’re going to love these no bake peanut butter cereal bites! We are a family of 5 who are always going in all different directions and sometimes need something my kids can snack on while doing their homework after school, or grab while we are running out the door. These are perfect for those times! These bites are so easy to make and include two of our favorite cereals, Honey Nut and original Cheerios®. 😉 Packed full of peanut butter and coconut too, they are just sweet enough with the crunch of cereal throughout! Sponsored by Cheerios® all opinions are my own.
They are perfect for:

Add all of your Cheerios to a baggie and crush a bit leaving some pieces whole and others broken/smashed. Add cereal to your mix and mix everything well.
Use a mini muffin pan to spoon your peanut butter cereal bite mixture into each small hole.
Put in refrigerator for at least one hour or until bites harden.
Keep in the fridge and take out when you want to enjoy them so they maintain ball shape, can be kept for several days and enjoyed one (or two) at a time
