What can you add to Kellogg Corn Flake Bars Recipe?
I’m always just using what I have and sometimes that means trying new things. These bars are really good with creamy peanut butter or chocolate chips. We have even added both. 🙂 So yummy! Once we didn’t have enough corn flakes so I mixed in some ice krispies to make the recipe. The bars turned out very good. You can also add seasonal marshmallows to make Corn Flake Bars Marshmallows treats! They look really pretty with the seasonal mini marshmallows that are different colors. You can even make these cereal bars gluten free with the base recipe.
The possibilities are endless! You can take this recipe and make corn flakes squares a ton of different ways. Sometimes, we use frosted flakes instead of plain corn flakes. Yum! Chocolate Frosted Flakes taste amazing too! The no bake bars are always a hit all around. Chocolate lovers will especially love this combination. If it is too much chocolate for you, try mixing in a few plain corn flakes with the chocolate frosted flakes. This will cut down on sugar and help with the sweetness. We do this a lot and it’s delicious! The kids love it!

Reader, Sierra submitted this recipe and is very frugal and sounds like a special dessert for lunch or after dinner. I have everything on hand, so I am definitely making this for the kids. I also want to try Nutella Banana Granola Bars. We love nutella so that sounds really good.

I am thinking this could be delicious with ANY kind of cereal that you can get for cheap… We have a ton of plain cheerios in my pantry. I love recipes that make it easy to substitute different ingredients. It makes it so easy to make these and keeps the kids from getting bored with the same old thing. No worries about not having what you need on hand when you can just substitute ingredients. So easy!
Use what is on sale that week and this is even more cost effective and budget friendly. Yeah! If you are looking to make wiggle room in your budget, that is a trick I often do. I will improvise and buy what is on sale each week. When I need that ingredient, I already have it and do not have to pay full price. Sales come in cycles and if you buy when it’s on sale, you will never pay full price. It’s a great way to shop.
