6 cups Fiber One Honey Clusters Cereal
4 Tbsp. shredded coconut
4 scoops (1 1/3 cups) protein powder
(We used GNC Pro Performance 100% Whey Protein Vanilla Flavor.)
fat free butter spray
1 cup sugar free honey
(We Used Honey Tree Sugar Free Imitation Honey.)
1/2 cup lite (reduced sugar) corn syrup
(We used Karo Lite Syrup.)
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup Splenda
(We used the box that measures cup for cup like sugar.)
1 cup peanut butter
(We used Naturally More.)
1. Stir together the Fiber One cereal, coconut and protein powder together in a large mixing bowl and set aside.
2. Lightly coat a glass 9x13 baking dish with fat free butter spray.
3. Warm a large non-stick pot or pan over medium heat. Then pour in the honey, corn syrup, brown sugar, Splenda and stir until it's bubbling, about 1.5 minutes. Mix the peanut butter in and bring to a boil again, about 1-2 more minutes.
4. Fold the cereal mixture into the honey/peanut butter until it's thoroughly coated and the protein is completely mixed in. Mold it all into the 9x13 baking dish, pressing down firmly until it's evenly distributed. NOW CUT THE BAR INTO 12 EVEN PIECES. If you wait until it's hardened, it will be much more difficult to slice. Then cover and put in the refrigerator.
5. Once it's hardened, wrap in wax paper and keep in the refrigerator in an airtight container. As long as it's refrigerated, it'll stay good for 10 days.
Yield: 12 Servings
Freeze bars for easy re-heating later. Make sure they're tightly sealed inside freezer safe bags or plastic containers.
Microwave each bar for approximately 45 seconds to 2 minutes, depending on microwave strength. It will melt a little as it warms up, so be prepared to mixed it back together.
