Let’s talk about cereal for a minute.

Are you a cereal fanatic? Only eat it once in a while? Or left it behind in your childhood?

Let’s start with the hubster. He loves cereal, but he’s a total creature of habit. Cheerios are his cereal of choice. Not the honey nut version, not the chocolatey ones, just plain ‘ole Cheerios. For as long as I’ve known him, that’s the only cereal he eats.

Myself, on the other hand? I loooove cereal! I feel like I actually enjoy it more now as an adult than I did as a kid. And that’s probably because I loving munching on the kid-approved cereals that take me back to my childhood, such as Fruity Pebbles (my favorite!), Froot Loops, and Trix. With the occasional Special K or Honey Bunches of Oats variety thrown in for when I want to feel more adult-like.

While I don’t slurp down a bowl every day, cereal is a treat that I enjoy every now and then.

And I’ve decided to resurrect my love for this breakfast food by making these sweet and salty cereal bars.

These No-Bake Sweet and Salty Cereal Bars are perfect for when those cravings strike.

Let’s face it, team sweet and salty wins every time. Am I right?
