PREP: Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside. Measure out the cereal and place in a large bowl, set aside for now.
PEANUT BUTTER AND HONEY: Add the peanut butter, honey, and salt to a large, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Remove and stir vigorously. Return the bowl to the microwave for another 40 seconds. Remove and stir vigorously again.
ADD TO CEREAL: Pour in the vanilla and mix to combine. Use a spatula to scrape every bit of this peanut butter and honey mixture into the bowl with the cereal. Mix gently until all of the cereal is well coated.
FORM CLUSTERS: Drop clusters about 2 tablespoons in size onto the prepared sheet pan. Gently compress the clusters with your hands to ensure the cereal bites will stay together as they harden. Let stand at room temperature until set, about 1-3 hours. Enjoy!
STORAGE: Place any leftovers in an airtight container. Keep the container in a cool dry place for up to a week. These bites are best when fresh, and every day they stand, they lose texture and become overly soft/gooey/chewy (especially in overly humid climates). This recipe isn't a great candidate for freezing and thawing; the honey and peanut butter coating softens and the cereal becomes mushy.
