Sunbutter and Maple Cheerio Treats

We are officially in the thick of this whole Coronavirus pandemic. I’ve been teleworking for almost two months at this point.

    These sunbutter-maple treats were a hit with my kiddos (and me). I liked the fact that I could give them something wholesome to help them get through their afternoon slump.
