Peanut Butter Cereal Squares {with a nut free option}

using Natures Path Puffed Rice cereal

That peanut butter & chocolate combo never gets old! And something about these bars hits the spot every single time! Maybe its the cereal? – reminds me of all the Rice Krispie squares I grew up eating!

using GoGo Quinoa Puffed Quinoa

I have shared this recipe on Instagram a couple of times, it has probably been the most made recipe ever! So I figured it finally deserved a spot on the blog! Made with a handful of ingredients in only a few minutes with two cereal options, depending on your preference! If allergies are a concern, Sun Butter also makes a great nut free option in this recipe.
