Easy Energy Bars for on-the-go nutrition the whole family will love.

Recipe Ingredients

1/3 cup nonfat dry milk powder
1 tablespoon Smart Balance® Milk
1/3 cup Smart Balance® Rich Roast Peanut Butter (creamy or chunky)
1 ½ cups mini marshmallows
1 tablespoon Smart Balance® Buttery Spread Original
2 cups high protein, multigrain cluster cereal, crushed
¼ cup dried blueberries
¼ cup dark chocolate chips, melted (optional)

Recipe Steps

Line the bottom of an 8-inch square pan with wax paper.

In a small bowl, mix dry milk powder with milk to moisten.

Place the Smart Balance peanut butter, marshmallows and Smart Balance buttery spread in a medium to large microwave-safe bowl. Heat in microwave for 30-second intervals, stirring between intervals, until mixture is melted and smooth.

Stir in milk mixture. Add crushed cereal and blueberries to peanut butter mixture and stir until evenly mixed.

Transfer mixture to prepared pan.

Use a flat-bottom container or a glass to firmly and evenly press mixture into pan. Cool completely.

When completely cooled, invert pan onto a cutting board, allowing pressed mixture to fall onto board. Discard wax paper.

Cut square pressed mixture in half, then cut each half into six (4-inch) bars. If desired, drizzle melted chocolate over bars and cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
