Strawberry Yogurt Cereal Squares
2 cups corn flakes
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup applesauce
1 cup strawberry yogurt (or whatever flavour you prefer)
1 egg slightly beaten
2 tablespoons flour
Preheat oven to 350F. Mix together corn flakes, 3/4 cup flour, sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
Cut in butter or margarine and the applesauce until coarse crumbs form. Press 1/2 the mixture firmly into the bottom of a greased 8inch square pan.
Mix yogurt, egg and 2 tablespoons flour in another small bowl. Spread over cereal mixture in pan and then sprinkle the remaining cereal mixture on top
Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown; cut into bars when cooled.
One morning after breakfast I had an urge to try this recipe. Just as I was pulling them out of the oven, a friend called us over for an impromptu playdate. Luckily, I had something to bring! They were quite nice, and the kids and the adults seemed to enjoy them. They were easy to make and made from ingredients that I usually have on hand, so I can see me making these again.
