  • 1/2 c unsalted butter softened
  • 3/4 c granulated sugar
  • 1/2 c packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 c all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 c old-fashioned oats
  • 1 c cheerios
  • 1/2 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 c smooth peanut butter warmed up to a drizzling consistency


In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together dry ingredients ( flour, cocoa powder, soda and salt ). Set aside.
Place butter and both sugars in a large mixing bowl of a stand mixer and cream until light and fluffy.
Add egg and vanilla and mix just until combined.
With mixer on low speed, add dry ingredients and mix just until combined. Fold in cereal and chocolate chips.
Cover the dough and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled ( 2 to 3 hours, preferably overnight ).
When ready to bake, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Line a 13"x9" baking pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
Scrape the dough into the pan or scoop it out with an ice cream scoop. Smooth it out with an offset spatula.
Bake for 16 to 19 minutes, or until the edges appear set and dry. The center can be slightly underdone. The bars will finish baking while cooling.
Let cool completely in the pan.
Drizzle with warm peanut butter. Let sit for 15 minutes until set.
Cut into bars.
