Summer is always so much fun, I feel like it gives me a boost of creativity that the winter just doesn’t provide for me. Most recently, I wanted to make some healthier snack bars that we could bring to the beach, park, or to the cabin! So I set off to Walmart to pick up the ingredients.

Did you know it’s the Summer of Cheerios™ at Walmart!? You can find some awesome coupons here! Here’s what you’ll need to purchase to create your own Chocolate Protein Cheerios™ Bars…

  • 3/4 cup natural peanut butter
  • 3 cups Honey Nut Cheerios™
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 3 scoops protein powder (I like to use chocolate)
  • 3 squares of meltable chocolate bark


  1. Combine protein powder and Honey Nut Cheerios™ into a large bowl.
  2. Cut in peanut butter and honey, stir until thoroughly combined and protein powder is completely mixed in.
  3. Grease a 9×6″ or similar plastic container.
  4. Pour Cheerios™ mixture into container and press until even and packed down.
  5. Melt chocolate bark in the microwave until spreadable. Then pour melted chocolate over bar mixture in a thin layer. Spread with spatula to coat evenly.
  6. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, then serve!

Makes about 12 bars.

We’ve already made these bars a few times at our house this summer and they are so good to just grab a quick snack from the fridge! Even my daughter loves them, and she doesn’t know that they aren’t junk food! Win win for this mom 🙂

Will you be making them for your family? What tweaks would you make? I’d love to hear in the comments below!
