Bird Seed Squares

Bird Seed Squares


"This is an easy, healthy, but yummy, no-bake snack that disappears quickly whenever I take it along. You can easily substitute other ingredients for the cereal part such as ground or chopped nuts, flax seeds, etc. If you don't have enough of one thing, just add more of another."

After a few modifications, this was amazing! I happened to have all this stuff on hand and I wanted to use it up so I tried this recipe. I added peanuts to the dry ingredients and the chocolat...

Quick, easy and delish!! Will make again. I used almond butter and no sugar, just the honey. I bought some healthier grain rice cereal at the helathfood store.

We really enjoy these bars and what I do is pack the mixture down into the pan to keep the bars from being crumbly. I also stir the cocoa into the hot liqiud before mixing with the cereal.

I hate giving bad reviews but this was a crumbly mess. I didn't change a thing either. What a waste of some expensive ingredients too. This recipe is for the birds...

I love these bars! They are not so healthy with all that sugar, but there is some good nutrition in them, especially if you add in some extras like flax seed and nuts.

This is a great, healthy snack to make! The cocoa gives the granola bar great flavor, while not being overly sweet. Very good. My kids gobbled this one up!!

I made these as directed and they turned out great! I loved the texture of them.

made as described to a t, although a bit time i will add 1 cup of peanut butter I think to bind together better, other than that they still were very tasty!!

Love it, Love it, Love it!!!! This recipe is easy and fast to make, healthy, and it tastes great! I love the fact that you can use whatever you have in the kitchen and it still turns out yummy...
