Seriously-Good Peanut Butter Bars

We think these crunchy, chocolaty, and chewy bars are seriously good. Sure, you probably don't want to have these Seriously-Good Peanut Butter Bars every day (or  you'll find yourself moving the belt another notch), but for days when you know that a sweet pick-me-up could do you some good, these are just the ticket.

What You'll Need

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 (10-ounce) package marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 6 cups toasted whole grain oat cereal (see Note)
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries

What to Do

  1. Coat a 10- x 15-inch baking sheet with cooking spray. In a large pot over medium heat, melt butter and marshmallows, stirring until completely melted. Add peanut butter and 1 cup chocolate chips, stirring until smooth. Add cereal and cranberries, mixing until evenly coated.
  2. Spread evenly on baking sheet and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips, lightly pressing them into cereal mixture.
  3. Place in refrigerator 10 minutes, or until firm, then cut into 21 bars. Store in an airtight container.


Since they hold up really well, they can be packed inside a lunchbox or baggie and taken on the go.

Bacon-Barbecue Joe

One bite is all it will take to realize we've got the best Sloppy Joe recipe around. We got rid of the same old Joe sauce and instead, used a savory barbecue sauce, mixing in crumbled bacon, for an extra bold flavor.
