The original version of this recipe came from a jar of Smucker's Natural Peanut Butter. I've reduced the sugar significantly and substituted ingredients that I commonly have on hand for some of the original. Very tasty! I first sent them to school for parties for a couple of my kids several years ago and they STILL get requests from the other kids and even some of the teachers for me to make and send these bars!
**Use gluten free oats and cereal for an easy gluten free treat!
