Strawberry Breakfast Bars recipe for breakfast or for a school lunch. Gooey bars your family will love.
Talk about excited. I wondered past my favorite section at Kroger and found boxes upon boxes of goodness, all marked down, waiting for me to buy it.
I kind of have a thing for the clearance aisle at Kroger. It is like opening a present. You never know what you can find. Last week, I scored huge on odds and ends items including several packages of batteries. My children were so happy. We always have a battery shortage around here.
This week I found cereal. Several boxes of dented packages of Strawberry Cheerios for only $.75 each. The boxes may not have looked perfect, but the cereal was perfect inside of them. Really? Cereal for under a dollar? I’ll take it.
With so much cereal I knew I had to make something with it. This Strawberry Breakfast Bars came to mind. I mean, after all, strawberry with gooey marshmallow and Rice Krispies make the perfect bar for breakfast or to take in a school lunch. Pair it with some fruit and the kids will be happy.
Wrap the bars tightly in plastic wrap and they will keep nicely for several days.
If you want, feel free to add dried cranberries or dried apple pieces. I think even chocolate chips would be great, however, it may get away from the breakfast idea a little bit.
