Cereal Bars with Dried Cherries, Almonds and Coconut

Posted by *Recipe from Completely Delicious with Revisions​ on Apr 27th 2023

These healthier no-bake cereal bars packed with good stuff like dried cherries, unsweetened coconut, sliced almonds, honey, and almond butter make the best after-school or afternoon snack!


  • 4 cups crispy rice or puffed cereal 
  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats 
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds 
  • 1/2 cup Cherry De-Lite Dried Cherries 
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shaved or flaked coconut
  • 1/3 cup honey 
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil or butter 
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar 
  • 1/3 cup almond butter  or peanut butter, not natural-style
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ - ½ cup chocolate chunks , optional


  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine honey, coconut oil or butter, and sugar. Bring to a boil and let boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in almond or peanut butter and vanilla extract.
  • Pour over cereal mixture and stir until evenly coated.
  • Press into a lightly greased 9x13-inch pan. If desired, press chocolate chops into the top of the bars.
  • Let cool completely before slicing.
  • I like to use a combination of cereal. I used 2 cups crispy rice cereal and 2 cups Kashi seven grain puffs cereal, but you can use all crispy rice or all puffed cereal if you'd like.
  • Natural-style almond and peanut butters will prevent these bars from firming up. For best results, use a no-stir option.
