Special K Bars

Special K Bars

(12 servings)    Printable Version
  • 3 cups Special K cereal - lightly crushed
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup light Karo syrup
  • 1/2 cup sugar
Prepare a 9x9 baking dish with a light coating of butter or cooking spray.

In a large sauce pan, mix together peanut butter, syrup and sugar. Heat on high until edge of mixture begins to boil. Remove from heat and immediately stir in cereal.

Press mixture into prepared pan and let it cool completely. Cut into 4 huge or 12 small squares and wrap in plastic wrap.


This is a great base recipe. If you want to add chocolate chips or dried fruit, just throw in a handful after you've stirred in the cereal.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank skibunny for this recipe.

I like that you don't have to bake them and they tasted pretty good.

Used Special K Low Fat Granola Cereal and they're great! Also cooked in microwave and was less mess!

Use splenda brown sugar and light peanut butter for a lower calorie count.

You can melt chocolate and peanut butter together for a little extra treat!
