Ingredients:

  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 2 cups organic rolled oats
  • 1 cup whole grain oat cereal (Cheerios)

Preparation:

  1. Line 8x8-inch baking dish with foil or parchment paper. Spray with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Combine the honey and butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in the brown sugar and cinnamon, and bring this mixture to a boil. Lower heat to medium-low and simmer until sugar dissolves, about 2 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat.
