Hi, it's Rosie Battista with ICookNaked.com. And of course, I'm not really naked, but I'm here to show you how to make a low-fat, healthy cereal bar, that using mostly naked ingredients. Meaning, that it's food in it's most natural form. Now, this is real simple, easy, kids will love it, i love it, it's a great grab and go snack and it's literally one bowl to mix it up. So, what we're going to do, is put all out ingredients into this cereal. And the base of the cereal is, it's a brown rice crispy cereal. Which means, when I looked at the box, and I looked at the ingredients, the only ingredient is brown rice, period. So, what I'm going to add to the cereal, is half a cup of peanut butter. Again, you want to watch the ingredients on your peanut butter, because it's very deceiving out there. Some jars of peanut butter will say, natural, but they'll still add all kinds of extra oil. You don't need anything added to the peanuts, there's enough fat in the peanuts and enough, everything in the peanuts, just to be peanuts. You have a half a cup of peanut butter, a half a cup of date paste. To make date paste, I use a cup of dates, and a half a cup of water, soaked overnight and blended. And that is my sweetener of choice in all of the sweet treats that I make. Because dates are a fruit and they respond much better in your body. Now, I'm just going to mix the cereal into the wet ingredients, into the sticky ingredients, making sure that all of the cereal gets wet. There you go, easy. Now, I'm going to also add a half a cup of chopped nuts, these happen to be almonds, but you can use whatever you have, or you can mix them. Half a cup of raisins, and a half a cup of dark chocolate chips, I prefer to use the darker chocolate chops, the better. These are 65 percent cacao, just for an added little, tiny bit of a treat. And this right here, is so much healthier than any of the sugar flavored cereals that you might buy, already prepared in a store. And we're making it into a bar, so you can grab it and eat it in the run, or as your kids are walking out the door or walking in the door. So, all we have to do with this now, is put it in a nice pan. And I happen to find this very oblong shaped pan, which I like. But you can fool around with square, whatever you want to do, but we're going to eventually be able to cut this into some really nice bars. And we're just going to put this right into the pan. And you really cannot get much simpler. So, I've had my healthy cereal bar in the freezer for about, a little over an hour. So, what I'm going to do, is just separate it away from side. This is another amazing kitchen tool, because it's just a tiny, little spatula that gets out little, tiny pieces of bar, so it's great. So, I'm going to just cut this into four separate rows and then, I'll cut it into three. That just seems to be a nice size for me. And there you go, your healthy cereal bar. And what I like to do for a lot of fun, I buy these little Cellophane baggies and then, I can put an individual size serving. This way, it doesn't get dangerous, I don't get tempted to eat the whole pan. It's a little Cellophane bag, you can take a little ribbon, wrap it up. And you just created an awesome, little, healthy snack for your family, or for yourself. Because you deserve to treat yourself well. I'm Rosie Battista from ICookNaked.com. Ciao for now, and I'm going to try cut the rest of these up and put them in bags. Before I chow down on the whole pan, they're that good.
