I hope you all have been enjoying the live Instagram meal planning series I’ve been hosting this month. My goal is to help you (and myself), kick-start this year by planning some healthy and some yummy breakfasts to start the day with. 

One of the easiest breakfasts we can add to our meal plan is cereal. Post has several great options like Post Great Grains, Post Cereals Raisin Brand and Post Honey Bunches of Oats which are all delicious in a bowl of cold milk. But what about those days when you don’t have the time or energy to make a bowl of cereal? That’s when these delicious Cranberry Yogurt Coated Cereal Bars are the perfect substitute. 


My biggest struggle in the mornings is with skipping breakfast. I’m up early and out the door to the gym and don’t really want to sit down for breakfast so these bars let me start my day with “Spoonfuls of Goodness” on the go. The fiber in Post whole grain cereals fuel my body for the day and keeps me full until lunch. Post has so many cereal options, you can definitely find one you’ll love.

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Cereal Bars: Add all of the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. In a small saucepan, heat the honey, coconut oil, and marshmallows until melted and combined. Post Great Grains Banana Nut Crunch Cereal or Post Honey Bunches of Oats Honey Roasted Cereal are great options for these bars. They have the crunchy clusters you want in a cereal bar, plus either nuts or dried fruit.
2. Pour the melted mix over the dry ingredients and mix well until all of the pieces seem coated.
3. Spray the bottom of a 9×9 baking pan with cooking spray and line with parchment paper. Pour the cereal mixture into the pan and press it down evenly into the pan using the bottom of a measuring cup. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes.
