These no bake bars only have 3 ingredients and are SO yummy! Your toddler (ages 1+ because of the honey) will love these bars! They are definitely my kids favorites.

Moms, we all know that toddlers can be a handful, and getting them to eat nutritious snacks can sometimes be a challenge. But fear not! I’ve got a fantastic solution for you – No-Bake Bars. These delightful treats are not only incredibly simple to make but also perfect for little ones who love a quick and yummy snack.

Why No-Bake Bars Are Great for Toddlers

  1. Quick and Easy: As busy moms, we’re always on the lookout for quick and easy recipes. These No-Bake Bars take only a few minutes to prepare, making them the perfect snack for busy days.
  2. Minimal Ingredients: With just three simple ingredients, this recipe is budget-friendly and uses items you likely already have in your pantry – rice cakes, honey, and peanut butter.
  3. Healthy and Nutritious: Rice cakes are a great source of whole grains and dietary fiber, while peanut butter provides healthy fats and protein. Honey adds natural sweetness without any added sugars.
  4. No-Bake, No-Fuss: No need to turn on the oven or spend hours in the kitchen. Simply blend the ingredients, press into a dish, and refrigerate. It’s as simple as that!
  5. Kid-Friendly: The taste and texture of these bars are perfect for little taste buds. Plus, you can get creative and add extra ingredients like mini chocolate chips, dried fruit, or even a sprinkle of cinnamon for variety.

Now, let’s get started with the step-by-step instructions for making these delightful No-Bake Bars.

No-Bake Bars Recipe


  • 5-6 rice cakes (you can use more if they’re thin, less if thicker)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter


  1. Start by preparing an 8×8 baking dish. You can line it with parchment paper for easy removal, but it’s not necessary.
  2. Place 5-6 rice cakes (more if they’re thin, less if thick) into a food processor. Pulse them until they turn into fine crumbs. You can also crush them by hand if you don’t have a food processor.
  3. Pour the honey and peanut butter over the rice cake crumbs in the food processor.
  4. Blend the ingredients until they come together to form a sticky dough.
  5. Transfer the mixture to your prepared baking dish. Use a spatula or your hands to press it down evenly.
  6. Refrigerate the dish for 30 minutes to 1 hour, or until the bars have set.
  7. Once set, cut the mixture into toddler-friendly squares or bars.

Storage Tips:

Store the No-Bake Bars in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They can stay fresh for up to a week. You can also freeze them for longer storage. Just be sure to wrap them well in plastic wrap or foil before placing them in the freezer.
