Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
*Make sure to use puffed wheat cereal – not the kind that’s already sweetened with honey/sugar coating. Otherwise your bars will be way too sweet.

**Bring the mixture to a gentle boil while stirring for 1-2 minutes. If the mixture doesn’t boil your squares won’t hold together properly. However, if it boils for too long then the puffed wheat can end up too crunchy. 1-2 minutes boiling is plenty.
