Peanut Buttery & Marshmallow Cheerio Cereal Bars with Chocolate Chips

Happy Friday Friends! This week has passed by so quickly. I can hardly believe it. I look forward to the weekends because I allocate Saturday and Sunday’s to the not-so-healthy food items that I crave through the week. However, this weekend is not going to be unhealthy at all. I do not know how it happened, but I’ve gained a couple of pounds and I’m devastated. How does that even happen?! I feel a ridiculous urge to go run 10 miles {and, I do. not. run.} It’s not that I have some evil hatred for running {though I think I have some subconscious disdain for it}; I cannot run because I have asthma! Running and my body have never gone together. I usually utilize all of the workout equipment when I work out. However, I do not even think that I could be successful on the elliptical in the shape that I am in currently.

Oh boy. What happened to me?!

I guess I will nibble on a piece of lettuce and drown my sorrows in delicious water. I cannot wait!

There is something to be excited about, today is FRIDAY. I guess I should keep saying that to myself while avoiding the scale like the plague. In honor of Friday I have an awesome Kid Friendly Friday segment. This was a super easy, super delicious recipe that any little sous chef would love to help prepare! Today I have a deliciously Peanut Buttery & Marshmallow Cheerio Cereal Bars with Chocolate Chips. {I know, I know it’s a mouth full}.

I hope you all give these a try. They would be great to pack in lunches, take in for a Friday snack to share with the entire class or for an after school treat for the football, soccer, tennis, basketball or swim teams.
