WARNING: Don’t make these PB & Honey Breakfast Bars if you are alone! You might regret it later in life or later in that day.
I know it is kind of weird to start a recipe post with a warning, maybe just a little bit. But let me tell you why – PB & Honey Breakfast Bars are addictive. If you love peanut butter and honey, if you love Reese’s Puffs, if you love peanut butter and chocolate you will love these bars. But if you are alone you might find yourself eating the whole pan by yourself, thus the warning.
I know sometimes breakfast is a complete whirl. You might only have time to grab something while running out the door or through the drive-thru, that’s where an “on the go” breakfast bar comes into play. Prepare these PB & Honey Breakfast Bars the night before, wrap them in parchment, and put them in individual baggies and now YOU have control over your breakfast. And what can be better than that!?! Just a little peanut butter, honey, and chocolate. A delicious combination, cereal in a bar, no milk required.
Enjoy with a fruit smoothie for even a more complete breakfast.
