Random Meals and Cheerio Bars Recipe

Here’s some photos of random meals I’ve had lately that aren’t interesting enough by themselves for their own post, but definitely deserving of a blog blurb. Also I’ve got a recipe for cheerio bars to share.

“Meat”ball sub, made with Nate’s Meatless Meatballs.

Tahini chocolate chip cookies. (from this recipe)

Hawaiian pizza, made with Yves “ham” and Follow Your Heart soy cheez.

Cheerio bars with frosting. (recipe below)

These bars are really delicious, but definitely not too good for you. I make them occasionally for a sweet snack, not something I’d be eating every morning for a nutritious breakfast.

Cheerio Bars

Printable Recipe

Makes 12 bars

Ingredients:

3 cups cheerios (both original and chocolate are yummy), or any other O shaped cereal

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup light corn syrup

1/2 cup peanut butter

Directions:

Place corn syrup and sugar into a large saucpan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the sugar dissolves and the mixture starts to bubble. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, mix well. Add the cheerios and stir until all is well coated. Then press into a 12 x 8 pan. Let it sit for at least one hour, then cut into bars.

I don’t really have a recipe for the frosting, since I didn’t measure it out when I made it. I just put some powdered sugar in a bowl, and added enough plain soymilk and vanilla extract to get a good consistancy. Then I drizzled it over the bars. Easy and yummy.
