Cheerios $1 off 1 coupons and a recipe to go with it!

We really love Cheerios. Not so much as a cereal, although it is good that way too, but we like to make cereal bars with them. It makes a box of cereal go a very long way. Here is a good large family recipe for Cheerios bars.

1 3/4 cup honey
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup softened butter
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup milk
2 Tablespoons water
3 Tablespoons vanilla
2 eggs
3 cups whole wheat flour
2 1/4 cups oatmeal
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
8 cups Cheerios
2 cups raisins (or other fruit)

Mix together honey, sugar, butter, peanut butter, milk, water, vanilla, and eggs. Then, mix together dry ingredients (except Cheerios and Raisins). Pour the dry ingredients in with the wet mix and blend thoroughly. Then, gently add your Cheerios and raisins.
With greased fingers take half the mixture and put it in a greased 9x13 baking dish - pressing down firmly. Bake it at 375 for about 14 minutes or until golden brown. Take the rest of the mix and do the same thing. You can also make Cheerios muffins using the same technique but with a muffin pan.
Your kids will love 'em!
