Here is my simple, easy, no-bake cheerios breakfast bars made with plain cheerios, almonds, almond butter, cranberries, maple syrup and chocolate chips. Great for on the go breakfast or healthy snack.
I love a good breakfast bar.
They’re amazing on-the-go breakfast on busy weekday mornings.
Or a snack anytime.
What I really love about this Cheerios breakfast bars is that they need to be stored in the freezer and eaten frozen. Mmm…crunchy.
How perfect is that? Always ready to go.
And these are super easy to make –
Melt together almond butter (may sub peanut butter), maple syrup and chocolate chips in the microwave.
Stir with plain Cheerios, sliced almonds and dried cranberries.
Transfer to pan, freeze, slice and store or eat.
I love on-the-go breakfasts stocked in the freezer like Banana nut pancake cups, pumpkin streusel pancake cups.

Healthy-ish Chocolate Cheerios Breakfast Bars
Here is my simple, easy, no-bake cheerio breakfast bars made with plain cheerios, almonds, almond butter, cranberries, maple syrup and chocolate chips. Great for on the go breakfast or healthy snack.
- 1/4 cup almond butter (or use peanut butter)
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1 1/2 cups plain Cheerios
- 1/2 cup sliced almonds
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
Line a loaf pan with parchment paper (make sure that the parchment comes up the sides at least to about an inch) and set aside.
Into a large microwavable bowl, add almond butter, maple syrup and chocolate chips.
Microwave on high for about 45 seconds, until mixture gets hot. Remove bowl from microwave, stir well with a spatula until it gets very smooth and well combined.
Stir in remaining ingredients (cheerios, sliced almonds and cranberries), until thoroghly combined. Transfer mixture to the prepared loaf pan. Using greased hand or a greased flat spatula or a piece of parchment paper, press mixture very well, until even and well packed.
Place pan in the freezer for at least 2 hours, until frozen solid.
To cut bars, lift the parchment out of the pan using the sides ( or just turn pan upside down and tap onto a cutting board). Using a sharp knife, cut into 6 bars (or squares if preferred).
Store bars in the freezer. Eat frozen.
Double recipe can be made in a 8x8 square baking pan (increase microwave timing to one minute).
Bars can be frozen for up to 2 months.
Use peanut butter instead of almond butter.
