Salty, Crunchy No-bake Peanut Butter Squares


Active time: 5 minutes
By Sherry Coleman Collins, MS, RDN, LD

In a large bowl, mix oats and rice cereal. In a separate bowl, microwave peanut butter and butter together in 15-30 second increments until pourable. Mix in honey and salt. Pour this mixture over the oats and rice cereal and quickly mix everything together. Fold in pretzels and potato chips. Pour into an 8” square dish that has been prepped with parchment paper or butter. Press the ingredients into the pan firmly using buttered hands or using parchment paper to prevent ingredients from sticking to your hands. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour until firm, then cut into squares to serve.
