These bars are the perfect combination of salty, sweet, crunchy and chewy. Peanut butter and butterscotch is one of my favorite flavor combinations. When you combine peanut butter, agave, and brown sugar you get a mixture that’s creamy, rich, decadent and tastes like the middle of a butterfinger candy bar. You simply pour the mixture over cereal and let it set until the bars are firm enough to cut. You can use almost any cereal you want (I used cornflakes for these but special K and rice crispies work well too.) Think of them as “healthy” butterfingers!
- 1/4 cup agave

- Combine the peanut butter, brown sugar, agave and salt in a small saucepan over medium heat and stir until melted.

- Press the cereal mixture into a greased 8×8 inch pan and allow to set until cool before cutting into bars.
