Rice Krispie Treats are an American favorite, a bake-sale classic, and a fun ‘n easy treat. But because of the marshmallows and margarine, those of us on a healthful diet have to say “no thanks.” But guess what? Not any more!
I created a fantastic “Naked” Krispie Treat that is just as delicious as the original but so much better for you. Not only are they all-natural, they also have —
Protein (from almond butter)
Fibre (from brown rice)
Natural enzymes (from the raw honey)
Antioxidants and increased endorphins (from dark chocolate)
So enjoy these special treats and start a new bake-sale tradition!
Diana’s Krispie Treats
16-ounce jar raw, creamy almond butter
1 cup raw, creamy honey (melted)
½ teaspoon fine sea salt
10-ounce package of crispy brown-rice cereal (gluten free)*
1 to 1½ cups dark chocolate chips (optional)
*Choose an organic brand, if possible, or one that does not include additives or added vitamins.
You have 3 options.
Option 1: Chocolate-Chip Treats — Mix almond butter, melted honey, and sea salt in a large bowl and whip until smooth and creamy. Add chocolate chips and rice cereal and mix thoroughly. Pour into a 9×12-inch baking dish and press firmly down with dry hands. Let stand until honey hardens and then cut into squares. Store airtight.
Option 2: Honey Treats — Same as above without the chocolate chips.
Option 3: Cocoa Krispie Treats — Mix almond butter, honey, and sea salt in large pot over low heat and whip until creamy and warm. Remove from heat and add chocolate chips and continue mixing until melted. Add rice cereal and mix thoroughly. Transfer into a 9×12-inch baking dish and press firmly down with dry hands. Let stand until cooled and then cut into squares. Store airtight.
