Kellogg's Raisin Bran Cereal Bars Recipe

Ask each member of my family about their favorite cereal, and you’ll get a different answer every time. Fortunately, we go through cereal so quickly that it’s no problem to have several boxes open at once. For me fiber is important, so I usually grab the box of Kellogg’s Frosted Mini Wheats. The girls are rather fond of Kellogg’s Apple Jacks, and the boys in my family tend to gravitate toward the box of Kellogg’s Raisin Bran.

What exactly is Cereal Freestyle?

Do you ever feel like you can’t decide between two types of cereal, or if you’re feeling very indecisive 3 or more? Maybe you’re in the mood for some crunch flakes, but wouldn’t mind a hint of the sweet apple taste of Apple Jacks. Sometimes you just have to mix things up a bit! My personal cereal freestyle looks something like this – Raisin Bran, Frosted Mini Wheats, and Apple Jacks.
