Cereal Bars (GF & DF)

cereal barsIt was a day of celebration last year when I learned that Cheerios are now gluten-free!  One of my favorite breakfast cereals, baby snacks, GORP ingredient, etc. is now part of my life again! Thank you, Cheerios, for making your product gluten-free!

To celebrate, here is a recipe for your sweet tooth, using Cheerios and my favorite dairy-free Enjoy Life chocolate chips.  You might have to guard these delicious bars. They are disappearing quickly at my house!
