This recipe for no bake cereal bars sounds really good. I am surprised at the ingredients list but the end result could be fantastic. You never know until you try it and I am anxious to give this one a go.

You had my attention at no bake. Don't be fooled. You may not need to bake the bars but there is a little cooking involved. Really simple recipe and I know a couple of teens that could whip these up and have them for snacks. School is almost out and we will need to keep the kids feed during the day. Looking for new friendly snack recipes and I think this one is a keeper.

I made this but had to change some things due to what I had on hand. It was a huge hit! I loved how easy they are to make, and clearly very versatile. I can't wait to make them as written. I used the marshmallow/butter mixture, and the mini chocolate chips, and then used generic Honey Nut Cheerios and cinnamon popcorn I had made earlier. I also sprinkled Oreo crumbs on top. I know, it was quite different from the original, but having that recipe made it possible. Just one thing, the chocolate chips melted as soon as I started mixing them in.

Would be easy and quick to make but way too many calories, fat, and carbs for me--especially when trying to keep my weight under control.

Then just don't make them!

What is the nutrition content? It would be nice to know for thse on Weight Watcher Plus Points.

I used calorie count to analyze the recipe and this is what they came up with per serving (48g) Calories: 204 Calories from fat: 86 Total fat: 9.5g Saturated fat: 2.0g Trans fat: 0g Cholesterol: 2mg Sodium: 117mg Total Carbs: 20.0g Dietary Fiber: 1.0g Sugars: 15.5g Protein: 2.7g

It would be helpful to know how many calories each bar contains.

My husband and I loved this recipe.

can you use trail mix??

These cereal bars tasted great. Took to a family reunion and got many thumbs up! I added peanut butter to the marshmellow and deleted the raisins and walnuts!

I work in a bakery and tryed that on some recipes, never works, the fluff becomes runny and the bars will not stay together, also allot more flavor from the regular marshmellows. Hope this helps.

Do you think you could use marshmallow fluff in place of the marshmallows since you're going to melt them anyway? If so would you still use 10 ounces of fluff?

I think I would like it better without the raisins. Should I substitute one-half cup of something else or think I could just omit the raisins ?

You can use any dried fruit that you like. Cranberries is a good one.

I think you could just omit them. There's a rice crispie bar crockpot recipe on this site that is similar and only adds 1/2 cup of the chips without nuts or raisins. No promises, but I think only chocolate would be fine. I might even throw in just a few extra chips.

Could maybe use butterscotch or peanut butter chips.
