Updated Sep 20, 2016

Ingredients

  • 1 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup almond butter
  • 6 cups Cheerios™ cereal
  • 1 bag (12 oz) dark chocolate chips (2 cups)

Steps

  • 1
    Spray 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray; line with cooking parchment paper, leaving overhang on 2 sides.
  • 2
    In 2-quart saucepan, heat honey, brown sugar and coconut oil over medium heat, stirring as it melts. Heat to boiling; remove from heat, and stir in almond butter. Pour mixture into large bowl; stir in cereal to coat well. While still warm, press mixture firmly in pan.
  • 3
    Microwave chocolate chips in microwavable bowl uncovered on High in 30-second bursts, stirring after each burst, until melted and smooth. Spread evenly over bars. Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until firm. Cut into 6 rows by 3 rows.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Use bottom of flat glass to press cereal mixture firmly into pan.
  • tip 2
    These bars will become hard after time if you store them in the pan. To keep them chewy for a few days, just wrap individual bars tightly in plastic wrap, and store at room temperature.
