A Rice Krispie treat is BASICALLY a granola bar, right? :)

Thursday, April 25, 2013

I mean, I didn't use any butter or corn syrup, I used EnviroKidz Chocolate Koala Crisp (or something like of those cereals you get in the organic hippie section of the grocery store) so it was made with brown rice and less sodium than Rice Krispies, and I mixed in some unsalted/unsugared/nothing-but
-nuts peanut butter for protein (um, sure, for protein...not because it's delicious or anything) and instead of honey or agave nectar or real maple syrup or whatever I used mini marshmallows....but the nutritional value is PRACTICALLY the same as a granola bar, right? Whole grain + protein + sticky sugar substance to hold it together? I mean, honey's got some antioxidant action working for it, but surely marshmallows have antioxidants too!

They don't?

WHATEVER, I may have had way too much fun making/OD-ing on pseudo-rice krispie treats, but they were tasty. Cocoa krispies with peanut butter, with chocolate peanut butter (I'd mixed in milk and cocoa powder and splenda), with pumpkin pie-flavored marshmallows, with cinnamon/peanut butter/ many varieties and all of them good! At least I only made a couple bars' worth of each kind. :)

    Rice Krispie treats are the one non-chocolate sweet I absolutely cannot resist and will clear the pan of. And if they DO have chocolate in them? Just GET OUT OF MY WAY.
