“Love You Berry Much” No-Bake Cereal Bars
The icy cold of winter is making me long for something bright and cheerful. What better way to cure the winter blues than with a batch of no-bake cereal bars shaped like hearts! These puffed rice bars are sweetened with pink freeze-dried strawberries and raspberries. I also added a handful of white chocolate chips, although you could definitely use mini chocolate chips if you prefer. For a hidden boast of boost of protein, fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, I threw in some ground flax seeds, too.
I love these kind of recipes where you can eat sweet treats for breakfast, or as a snack with some hot tea. Let’s be real, I’m not opposed to decadent desserts, like our Double the Love Chocolate Brownie recipe. However, these no-bake cereal bars are great when you want a slightly healthier Valentine’s Day treat.
When making the recipe, I’d recommend setting a couple of white chocolate chips and strawberry pieces aside. Then you can press these into the bars at the end, to highlight the bright pink and white colors.
