This is a great recipe if you on the go! It's an easy microwave snack that uses the ingredients found in most pantries. This can even be made with low fat peanut butter. Not only healthy but it taste great!!

I needed to use up some Shredded Wheat cereal that no-one was eating so this recipe was perfect! because of my changes I felt I should only give 4 stars. I didn't have any honey so i took my 1/2 measurer and filled it almost all the way with light corn syrup, then the rest of the way with a few T of maple syrup for flavor. The cereal gave a nice crunch , the raisins made them a bit chewy and the peanut flavor was mild imo... I had trouble trying to cut them into bars since they were a bit soft and gooey; maybe the honey would have made them firmer! I may add some chopped peanuts next time as well! Thanks for the recipe. :)

Great way to use up the shredded wheat and have a little something sweet too. I added 1 additional cup of cereal for a total of 4 cups, did not pack the brown sugar, added 1 teaspoon of vanilla and replaced raisins with semi-sweet mini chocolate chips sprinkled on top. For the stove top method, I brought the brown sugar and honey to a boil, removed from heat, added peanut butter and vanilla, stirred until smooth, poured over cereal, mixed, poured into pan, sprinkled with chocolate chips. Yum!
