Shredded Wheat Peanut Butter Bars

This recipe is from the side of a box of cereal. I used Post Shredded Wheat, Wheat 'n Bran.  It was great as is, but I thought it was a little sweet.  Maybe process the raisins and eliminate a some of the brown sugar next time.  The kids loved this one and I plan to make it in bulk for post-workout snacks.  Good proteins, good fiber/carbs, and really very yummy.  Took about 5 minutes total to make, too.  The only bad news is that I used the rest of the cereal, and Wheat 'n Bran with almond milk is my favorite.  I may send the boys to store to restock tonight!
