Happy first day of Autumn!
I’m celebrating it with a sick kiddo this weekend. So, to cheer her up, we decided to play around with these new Pumpkin Spice Cheerios and make a new cereal bar treat!
Regular Cheerios are a go-to cereal in our house. They are vegan (obviously), low in sugar, and fun to eat. Every once in a while, Cheerios releases a specialty flavor that is also accidentally vegan, and when that happens we get very excited! Pumpkin Spice is the newest of those flavors (Chocolate Peanut Butter and Apple Cinnamon are two others).
Since we just happened to have a bag of Dandies vegan marshmallows kicking around, we decided that a fun cereal treat was in order.
They definitely brought a smile to some little faces around here today. (They may even make it into a lunchbox treat this week – assuming they last the weekend!)
Pumpkin Spice Cheerio Cereal Bar Treats
3 tbsp vegan margarine
1 283g bag of Dandies vegan marshmallows
1 306g box of Pumpkin Spice Cheerios
Line a 9×9 baking dish with parchment paper, leaving an edge hanging over each side.
In a large pot on medium-high heat, melt margarine and marshmallows until soft and gooey.
Remove from heat; stir in entire box of Pumpkin Spice Cheerios until fully combined with marshmallows. Press firmly into lined baking dish, evening out the top and corners. Chill in the fridge for at least one hour. Remove from dish and cut into squares.
