Why are these so great?? It’s because they’re:

  • Naturally gluten-free and vegan
  • Come together in less than 10 minutes
  • EASY to make – let the kids do it!
  • Covered in chocolate!!
  • Adaptable to your tastes and preferences
  • Flexible to accomodate allergies

Going off that last point – these are very customisable to make them perfect for your and your family!

Do you or your family avoid peanuts? No problem – just substitute your favorite nut butter in place of the peanuts. You can also use a seed butter to keep them nut-free!

Do you avoid corn? You can trade out the cornflakes for another favorite cereal. Crispy rice cereal works well here, or you could use something like this coconut flake paleo cereal to keep it grain-free/Paleo-friendly.

Not a chocolate person? Skip it! You can absolutely make these without the chocolate topping. Then they’ll be pure peanut butter goodness!

I love serving them cold, straight out of the fridge. They end up with a crunchy, fudgy texture when they’re cold. They’re also wonderful frozen! They can stay at cool room temperature for a little while, but they’ll get gooey quick in warmer weather, so be aware of that.

We love these Peanut Butter Cornflake Bars so much and they never last very long in our house. The first time I made these, they were gone within 24 hours. Between three people. My dad tried one and said “you should be arrested for these.” They’re DANGEROUS to have around for peanut butter chocolate lovers like us, so make sure you have friends around to share with if you don’t want to eat the whole batch yourself ;)

So grab your ingredients, enlist your kids help (if you have them, this is a super fun project to make with them), and get to no-baking!! Enjoy :D

Notes

I recommend seeking out naturally-sweetened cornflakes, from a brand like Barbara’s or Nature’s Path. They are both sweetened with organic fruit juice concentrate.
