Honey-Nut Cheerios Bars

img_6078.jpg

These are a simple snack to make for any season. We first made these into "eggs" last Easter and now are rolling them back out as an easy addition to any lunchbox*.

Check your child's school nut policy before sending these to school. These work with any nut-butter though, so feel free to adjust to use almond, Nuttzo, or sunflower seed butter alternatives, if necessary!
