What do I need to make these No Bake Peanut Butter Cereal Bars?

  • Light butter– I use Land O’ Lakes light butter made with canola oil 
  • Whole Grain Cereal: you can use Corn Flakes, Rice Krispies, Rice Chex, or original Cheerios
  • Reduced fat peanut butter: Jif Whips has always been my go-to for low point peanut butter until I discovered it it was discontinued as of June 2020. I was devastated by this news! I immediately went on a hunt for the next best low point peanut butter and discovered Better’n Peanut Butter Peanut Butter. It’s only 3 smartpoints for 2 Tbsp and 100 calories! 
  • Mini marshmallows 
  • Vanilla extract-for added flavor 

 

What low point peanut or nut butter do you recommend?

Well, my two favorite whipped peanut butters Jif Whips and Peter Pan 1/3 less fat whipped have both been discontinued-but I have since found a few other brands that I LOVE!

This Better’n Peanut Butter Peanut Butter is only 100 calories, 3 smartpoints for 2 Tablespoons, 4 grams of protein, and is Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Palm Oil Free, and Kosher.

You can find it online on Amazon HERE.

 

The other brand I LOVE and RECOMMEND is American Dream Nut Butters. These nut butters are low in points and are amazing!!  I have loved the every flavor!
