We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, however, it’s also the easiest to skip.  Rushed morings, busy schedules and picky eaters can contribute to many of us skipping our morning meal.

I’ve found that if I make easy, grab-and-go options my family is more apt to eat breakfast every day.  This is where these easy cereal bars come in.

Easy Breakfast Recipes: Cereal Bars

1 cup of your favorite cereal
1/3 cup miniature marshmallows
Chocolate chips, melted for drizzling
Sliced almonds for garnish

Spray a microwave safe bowl with non-stick cooking spray.  Add cereal and marshmallows to bowl.  Microwave on high for 45 seconds, or until marshmallows melt.  Stir to combine marshmallows and cereal.

Run your hands under water to prevent the marshmallows from sticking.  Using your hands, form the mixture into two bars.

OPTIONAL: Drizzle melted chocolate on top on each bar and top with sliced almonds.

Refrigerate until fully cooled.
