Recipe courtesy of @Siriouslydelicious

Total Time: 2 hours 20 minutes

Servings: 8


1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats

1 cup crisp rice cereal

1/2 cup dried apples, diced

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 cup light brown sugar

1/4 cup honey

1/4 cup peanut butter (or any nut butter)

1/2 cup Juicy Juice 100% Juice, Apple

1 tsp vanilla


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. Spread out oats evenly on a rimmed baking sheet, and toast in the oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
  3. In a bowl, combine rice cereal, apples, cinnamon, salt and toasted oats.
  4. Stir together the brown sugar, honey, peanut butter, vanilla and Juicy Juice 100% Juice, Apple in a saucepan over medium heat. Let the mixture come to a simmer, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved, about 5 minutes.
  5. Pour the juice mixture over everything and stir until well blended.
  6. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper, allowing the paper to extend over the sides of the pan. Grease the parchment paper.
  7. Using a rubber spatula, spread the mixture into the prepared pan, pressing lightly into an even layer.
  8. Place in the refrigerator, and chill until completely cool and firm; 30 minutes to an hour. Using the parchment paper as handles, lift the chilled bar mixture out of the pan. Cut into 8 bars, and serve, or store individually wrapped in plastic wrap for breakfast or snacks.
