Stir up a no-bake bar that's rich in high-fiber cereal and apples.
cups Fiber One™ Honey Clusters® cereal
cup roasted sunflower nuts
cup corn syrup or honey
cup packed brown sugar
cup dried apple slices, coarsely chopped
teaspoon ground cinnamon
cup peanut butter
Butter bottom and sides of 8-inch square pan, or spray with cooking spray. Place cereal in resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag and slightly crush with rolling pin or meat mallet (or slightly crush in food processor).
In large bowl, mix cereal and sunflower nuts; set aside.
In 3-quart saucepan, heat corn syrup, brown sugar, apples and cinnamon just to boiling over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in peanut butter. Pour over cereal mixture; stir gently until evenly coated.
Press mixture evenly into pan with back of wooden spoon. Refrigerate about 1 hour or until set. For bars, cut into 4 rows by 4 rows. Store covered at room temperature.
Honey will slide easily out of the measuring cup if you first spray the cup with cooking spray.
Apples are loaded with soluble fiber that helps to lower blood cholesterol. Start slowly so you have time to get used to more fiber in your diet.
