what could i replace the peanut butter with?

This recipe calls for peanut butter. I am a huge peanut butter lover, and when you combine it with honey, I just about die.

However, I know there are some allergies, and some peanut butter haters out there, which is an easy problem to fix.

You could also use any nut butter. I recommend almond butter, or cashew butter, but really any nut based butter would work with this recipe.

If it’s an allergy, you may also want to replace the peanut butter Cheerio’s with plain, or whole wheat. Chocolate Cheerio’s would also taste delicious with these.

do I have to use natural peanut butter?

You definitely don’t have to use natural peanut butter for this recipe. I had it on hand, so that is what I used, but any peanut butter will work.

You could also use creamy or crunchy. I like the little peanuts, so I use crunchy, but it is totally optional.

  1. These look like one of our children's favorite desserts, Cheerio Bars. It is made with cheerios, peanut butter and marshmallows. I'm thinking they will enjoy this one since it is so close. Will these firm up so you can pick them up without getting all messy?
  2. I made these last night and followed the recipe exactly. I was hoping these would be a quick grab and go breakfast. I could not get them to firm up enough to pick them up. I was making them and a friend asked for the recipe. Maybe she can see if hers firm up enough to pick them up. If not, I'm wondering if it can be the difference in humidity?
    • Could be differences in your microwaves. In order for the sugar to reach the point of candied, which is what makes it set up in haystacks as well, the mixture needs to reach a hot enough temperature. Try again but mix your peanut butter and honey in a saucepan and bring it to a simmer or light boil while constantly stirring. (I'm a home ec teacher <3)
      • i had trouble as well. i will definitely try the saucepan method next time. Also, could it be that the type of PB you use matters? i ran out of natural, so i used half natural and half "regular" crunchy PB. I looked at other similar recipes, and a lot of them use almost a 1:1 ratio of PB:honey, and almost half the cheerios. i will keep trying.
      • Ours are cooling now. I used regular creamy peanut butter. I melted it in the microwave. It was already melted when I added the honey and so I did not microwave it again. If ours doesn't set up, I wonder if this is where I may have gone wrong. I should have ran the microwave again to heat up the honey. After reading your comment, I wonder if others have done the same as me.
  3. I was reading the recipe and it didn't seem like they would stay firm and not be messy. I like the idea of adding other ingredients, though a little at a time at the end. And maybe scoop into bakers mini muffin paper cups. I also wonder why mixing the honey and peanut butter would cause it to solidify. There was no response to that issue

    I just made these but with rice crispies as it was all I had on hand. My kids loved making them and love the finished product. Ours set in less than an hour just sitting on the counter, not falling apart or messy at all! Thanks for the idea.
    • You will be fine using regular peanut butter in place of the natural peanut butter. I was just reading over all of the comments on this recipe. I'm hoping that using regular peanut butter will help hold yours together well. It looks like some people had problems and others did not. Ours have always turned out. Best of luck. They are so delicious.

    I just made these. After following the instructions they seemed dry so I heated up more peanut butter. Unfortunately, I think mine may fall apart too. I think the key factor may be the temp of the honey and peanut butter together. It's just not long enough to do 40 seconds and then 30 more. It just doesn't get hot enough.
  6. These sound wonderful. I cannot wait to try. Reading the comments, I feel like an umpire is needed. The bully-ish remarks (that makes one feel bad) are unbelievable. "They fell apart, blah, blah..." Stop it! Think of the author and the time, energy and emotion to share this recipe. Shame on all of you for just being crappy. She shared the recipe, which works for her. Blaming her for "wasting your time, money and ingredients" is ridiculous. Kudos Six Sisters Stuff!!
