On th Go Bars#QuakerUp 142

If you know me you know I’m always on the go doing something. I get so busy I get forget to eat. Not good. So what I do now is carry snacks with me. I like to make my own snacks and I #LoveMyCereal. You don’t always need milk to have cereal, so I made a delicious snack that would feed my body and my sweet side. 🙂 I have to have a bit of sweetness in my snacks. I found all the ingredients I needed at my local Walmart. They were all located in the cereal isle. I used the Quaker® Real Medleys® Quaker® Oatmeal Squares Quaker® Simply Granola. They also have Quaker® Life but I didn’t use them since I used the other oatmeal squares.

I love using honey in my sweet snacks because honey adds a unique sweet flavor. I remember my dad having a jar of honey next to his place at the dinner table. He had a sweet tooth, must be where I get it from. 🙂

They hold together and stay hard if you keep them refrigerated. If you prefer them soft let the bars warm to room temperature before eating. I put some in a plastic baggie and take them with me. It’s easy and helps me keep me from forgetting to eat. lol.

They stay fresh up to a couple weeks in the refrigerator. One recipe makes 12 nice size bar.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. It’s a great On the Go Snack Bar. Do you have a favorite on the go snack?

P.S. I enjoyed making these bars so much I also made a White Chocolate Cereal Snack Mix.
