hi it's Rosie Batista with I cook naked

calm and of course I'm not really naked but I'm here to show you how to make a low fat healthy cereal bar that using mostly naked ingredients meaning that it's food in its most natural form now this is really simple easy kids will love it I love it it's a great grab and go snack and it's literally one bowl to mix it up so what we're going to do is put all our ingredients into this cereal and the base of the cereal is it's a brown rice krispies cereal which means when I looked at the box and I looked at the ingredients the only ingredient is brown rice period so what I'm going to add to the cereal is 1/2 a cup of peanut butter again you want to watch the ingredients on your peanut butter because it's very deceiving out there some jars of peanut butter will say natural but they'll still add all kinds of extra oil you don't need anything added to the peanuts there's enough fat in the peanuts and enough everything in the peanuts just to be peanuts we have 1/2 a cup of peanut butter 1/2 a cup of date paste to make de paste I use a cup of dates and a half a cup of water soaked overnight and blended and that is my sweetener of choice in all of the

sweet treats that I make because dates are a fruit and they respond much better in your body so I'm just going to mix the cereal into the wet ingredients into the sticky ingredients making sure that all of the cereal gets wet there you go easy now I'm going to also add 1/2 a cup of chopped nuts these happen to be almonds but you can use whatever you have or you can mix them 1/2 a cup of raisins and a half a cup of dark chocolate chips I prefer to use the darker chocolate chips the better these are 65% cacao just for an added little tiny bit of a treat and this right here is so much healthier than any of the sugar flavored cereals that you might buy already prepared a store and we're making into a bar so you can grab it and eat it on the run or as your kids are walking out the door or walking in the door so all we have to do with this now is put it in a nice pan and I happen to find this very oblong shaped pan which I like but you can fool around with square whatever you want to do but we're going to eventually be able to cut this into some really nice bars and we're just going to put this right

into the pan and you really cannot get much sympathy cereal bar in the freezer for about a little over an hour so what I'm going to do is just separate away from the side this is another amazing kitchen tool because it's just a tiny little spatula that gets out little tiny pieces of bar so it's great so I'm going to just cut this into four separate rows and then I'll cut it into three it just seems to be a nice size for me and there you go your healthy cereal bar and what I like to do for a lot of fun i buy these little cellophane baggies and then I can put an individual sized serving this way doesn't get dangerous and I don't tempted to eat the whole pan into a little cellophane bag and take a little ribbon wrap it up and you've just created an awesome little healthy snack for your family or for yourself because you deserve to treat yourself well I'm Rosie Batista from I cook naked comm ciao for now and I'm going to try to cut the rest of these up and put them in bags before I Cho down on the whole pan they're that good
