These chocolate peanut butter cereal bars are of the quickest, easiest desserts that I make that is gluten and dairy free. They are loaded with creamy peanut butter, dairy free chocolate, and a favorite cereal of choice. They are so delicious it is hard not to eat the whole pan at once!
Before my husband learned that he had to give up gluten and dairy, scotcheroos were his favorite dessert. He would request them at all family gatherings and many times on the weekends when he had a craving. I would always keep ingredients on hand for them so I could make them whenever requested (and usually had most of the ingredients on hand to begin with). When my husband switched over to eating gluten and dairy free I knew that I had to come up with a modification to the traditional scotcheroo recipe so that I was still able to make him a delicious treat.
While these aren’t quite as good as scotcheroos they take a close second and we sometimes go through a pan in a few days. These do not have the traditional butterscotch topping but they are still loaded with peanut butter, dairy free chocolate and cereal.
You can use a cereal of choise for these. I’ve made them with rice krispy cereal, rice or corn chex, and corn flakes and all three have turned out to be delicious. Corn flakes are what is photographed because I like to use what we have on hand but the rice krispy version is my absolute favorite!
