Yummy and frugal and perfect for after school snacking that you won’t cringe to see them eat !  Make them as the recipe says or substitute the cereal for another kind like Chex and sub the peanuts for almonds and the fruit for raisins or another kind of dried fruit.  Aldi sells several kinds for $3.99/large bag..I just bought dried blueberries.  GO crazy and make these bars your own!
