Gooey Cornflake Bars {Gluten-Free}

These cereal bars are not just delicious…they’re also SO simple to make {4 ingredients!} and naturally gluten-free! My entire family loves when I make these! You’ll make them over and over again, I know I sure do….

*Being on a gluten-free diet has had some challenges, these cereal bars have helped satisfy my sweet tooth!


In a large microwaveable bowl, melt honey and peanut butter together for appx 1 1/2 mins.  {you may melt in a saucepan on your stovetop}.

Add vanilla and stir all together.

Add cornflakes and coat well.

Butter an 11×7 {or 8×8} pan. With wet hands {run your hands under water} press cornflake mixture into pan. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

These were “set” just in time for my son for an “after football practice” snack. Ohhhh, I love those moments when just he and I sit down and talk about his day…he’s growing up so quickly, but is still my little boy 🙂

Did I mention he’s also a ham for the camera? Hehe…..{he’s expressing his love for the bite of cereal bar he just took}. I’m so blessed to be his mom-I bet you can see how much laughter he gives me just in this photo.

I eat these on morning when I’m super rushed. Keep them refrigerated and they will stay in tact. MUCH better for you than a Nutri -grain Bar and naturally allergy friendly!  Enjoy!

  1. I have made these for years, but I drop them into ball shapes on wax paper. My boys love them. I even sent them to my son when he was in Iraq.

  2. These look great. I will forward these onto my friend who is gluten free. Thanks!

    Look so easy, on my next to bake, no bake this week, thanks. Have you tried them with rice bubbles? I think they should work quite well too 🙂
