Oaty Cereal Bars
I was looking for a cereal bar recipe that's fast, easy, and tasty (I'm trying to have more homemade stuff and less prepackaged ). These are fantastic, and I don't even like honey!! I used wheatie puffs (think unsweetened Sugar Smacks. yeah, they're pretty bland), and boiled the honey mix for 3-4 minutes. I think I overdid it, though- the bars came out break-a-tooth-crunchy. But I found a solution (yaaay)! I covered a bar with a damp paper towel, and microwaved it for 20-30 seconds. Then I broke it up into bite-sized pieces and OM NOM NOM'd them good! SCRUMTABULOUS.
EDIT: I boiled the honey/sugar mix for one minute (count 60 mississippis), and it was PERFECTLY chewy-- in fact, the bars stayed chewy for 2 weeks. YUM!
