I am a 34 year old living outside of Boston with my wonderful husband, energetic daughter, sweet son, and playful dog. I have degrees in both psychology and guidance counseling, and have worked in a variety of school settings. I strive to find a balance between the two basic food philosophies of “eat to live” and “live to eat“. I believe that food should be (and is!) one of the great pleasures of leading a healthy lifestyle.

Here’s a perfect no-bake back-to-school snack/dessert, the ingredients for which you most likely already have in your kitchen; especially if you have kiddos.

I bought a huge box of toasted whole grain oats cereal (basically Cheerios) from Trader Joe’s a few weeks ago, with Lily in mind. I place a handful on her high chair tray every morning, and enjoy watching her rake palmfuls towards her mouth… though most end up on the floor. She hasn’t yet mastered her pincer grasp, but when she starts working on it, the O’s will be perfect for practicing.

Neither John nor I are big cold cereal eaters, and since Lily is going through the box very slowly, I decided to incorporate the O’s into a recipe.

Although these cereal bars are definitely kid-friendly, they’re not for tots under the age of one. If babies under 12 months of age eat honey, they could develop Botulism, and it is recommended to hold off on all nut products in order to stave off possible allergies.

Sorry Lil’… these are for Mommy and Daddy for the time being ;).
