Gluten Free Power Sticks Breakfast Bars

I love these quick and easy breakfast bars. I have been making these for about 10 years, ever since I found the recipe when I went to Weight Watchers years ago to lose those unwanted Freshman 15 I gained when I went to college. Only 4 ingredients that you can easily modify to meet your specific dietary needs.

Power Sticks

1/2 cup Chunky Peanut Butter (I use Jif Natural Creamy Peanut Butter, but SunButter would be a great alternative if you have a peanut or tree nut allergy. I want to try this with Almond Butter.)

3 Tbs. Honey (I use local honey that I buy at Whole Foods, and I am excited to try this using my father-in-law’s honey after he gets his hives!)

2/3 cup Crushed Corn Flakes (Erewhon and Nature’s Path make gluten-free corn flakes, but my new favorite is by CerealVit, and there are only 3 ingredients in it! To add variety, try using other cereals too!)

1/3 cup Nonfat Dry Milk Powder (could use a non-dairy powdered milk too)

  • Mix everything together in a bowl. Form into 6 sticks and wrap individually in wax paper.
  • I store mine in an airtight container in the freezer.

        Thanks so much! I will keep an eye out for it. They really don't like any processed foods…like cereal. So something new is great…and knowing it was good for them too.
