Chocolate-Cherry Snack Bars

January/February 2011

Your rating: None Average: 3.7 (35 votes)

These cereal bars are chewy, crunchy and delicious with good-for-you seeds, nuts, fruit and little explosions of chocolate. We like the flavor of dried cherries or cranberries, but any coarsely chopped dried fruit will work.

I've made 3 batches of these bars now. I used gluten free rice cereal each time which had malt added, so were too sweet until I swapped the honey for brown rice syrup and they were much nicer. I didn't use any nuts, or chocolate bits, but added sunflower seeds and chia seeds and they were great! Will definitely continue to make these for the family and keep experimenting. They held together very well. Oh, also I drizzled dark chocolate over the top of the last batch and they were perfect!

Quick, easy, no fuss recipe

Tasty but crumbly mess

I too wonder if the magic missing ingredient was the flax seed? I did a little research on the web and that may be the case, or perhaps it was the damp weather. Either way, a note might have been nice. Luckily, it makes great breakfast cereal with milk or a good trail mix. I used some dried apricots and toasted the sesame seeds.

Healthy easy bars!

My husband is very picky when it comes to healthy snack bars. He loved these! I used unsalted nuts and pepitas and added extra honey the second time, they did crumble a little more the first time because I only used 1/2 cup honey. Came out perfect the second time! I also used flaxseed meal it seemed to hold it together better.

You can use almost any cereal, nuts and fruit!

How much extra honey did you

How much extra honey did you add? Thanks.

Eh, didn't work

I was missing the ground flax, so perhaps that's why they instantly crumbled apart in my hands? It was a very messy end result - I followed the directions and waited 1:10 to cut. There are better bars out there.

Quick prep time
