Cereal Bars

Sometimes cereal is popular when its first opened and then it seems to sit in the packet with no-one wanting to eat it!
Does that ever happen in your household?

Here's a great way to use up 'leftover' cereal!
I have used cheerios but other cereals would work equally as well.

You'll need:
          2 cups cheerios (or other cereal)
          3/4 cup craisins
          1/4 cup coconut oil
          2 Tablespoons peanut butter

In a bowl melt the coconut oil and peanut butter together in the microwave. Melt until completely soft and easily stirred. Time will vary depending on your microwave and the coconut oil used.
Stir in the cheerios and craisins. Mix well until all the cheerios have some of the oil mixture on them.
Press spoonfuls of the mixture into a muesli bar maker or a lined small baking tin.
Set in fridge.

If you have made these in a baking tin, you'll need to cut the mixture into bars or slices.

The oil/peanut butter mixture will settle on the bottom - but there is still enough on the top of the bars to hold them together.
