About a week ago, Cascadian Farms sent me two boxes of their cereal to try out. Purely O’s and Honey Nut O’s.
I really liked them both. Reallly liked. So much so that I hid the Honey Nut O’s box just for me…thank goodness babies can’t have honey.
While I was eating handful after handful cereal, I decided that they taste a lot like rice crispies.
The logical next step was to make some sort of sticky treat out of them,
You follow that logic, right?
Peanut Butter Purely O’s Treats
- 1 c peanut butter (creamy or chunky)
- 2/3 c maple syrup
- 1 t vanilla
- 3 cups of Purely O’s (or similar cereal)
Combine the peanut butter and maple syrup on a small saucepan on the stove. Cook over medium heat, stirring until incorporated. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.
Stir in the cereal and mix until all those O’s are covered in sweet sticky peanut butter. Then you can either press it all into a 9×13 pan or squish them into 12 little muffin tins until hardened.
(Yes, Adrienne eats peanut butter. Don’t try to tell me it’s not good for babies…I’m not buying it.)
Mama, I need another one. This one disappeared inside my squirrel cheeks.
