No bake corn flake bars with chocolate(gf)

corn flake barsRecently,I discovered the new Kellogg’s  gluten free cereal and I am in love with it! The touch of brown sugar,slightly sweet,enough to start your day with energy.

As a kid,I disliked corn flakes and any kind of cereal in general. My mother forced me many times to eat them,because as we all know,breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I wish I would listen to her! However,as the years were passing by,I went to study,in Rhodes,an island in Greece which is far away from home,I had to start eating breakfast,because that school was no joking around,no absence,waking up early in the morning and the discipline of a military school(Kind of!).

Nowadays,as a grown up adult and a mother of a 3 year old,I had to find a way to make cereal more fun! I found an amazing recipe. The recipe calls for  corn syrup. To be honest,I am not a fan of corn syrup.We don’t use it in Greece,I read about it,though and I still don’t like it. There are healthier options than that.

My little one loved it! Crunchy,topped with chocolate and the hint of almond and orange. Great way to start your day!
