I went looking for an afterschool snack for the kids and found this one. It took less than 5 minutes to make, super easy and it was really good. Instead of wheat flakes (?) I used rice Krispies and All bran. Really yummy.

This is a tasty way to get some extra fiber into your kids if you are making them a sweet treat anyway. I brought mine to a boil as the recipe directs, but you don't really need to in order to ' let' the brown sugar dissolve - it does so pretty quickly, meaning before it even boils. Bringing it to a boil makes these bars quite sticky and chewy. I would just stir over the heat for about 30 seconds. Kids enjoyed these.

Easy to make, but a little too sweet for my taste. Going to trying cutting out some of the sugar next time
