It’s pretty normal to crave a favorite treat from your childhood, regardless of how unhealthy it was. Satisfy your cravings and health goals with this recipe.
Being a fan of rice crispy treat squares back in the day, I recently had an appetite for some good, old fashioned rice crispy crunch. Those super gooey rice crispy treats were loaded with melted gobs of refined corn syrup and sugar (i.e. those fiendishly addictive white marshmallow puffs) made by Kraft in cahoots with Kellogg’s, and it’s been many years since I last looked at one.
Fortunately, they're easy to make, even when you're making a healthier version. And so I’ve made mine super healthy and high in protein. Loading it with antioxidant rich berries, fruit, and veggies with a side of coconut essence, this treat is like having a coconut macaroon, a rice crispy square, and a fruit & veggie cookie all in one. We once again kick the dreadful after effects of sugar to the curb, making this a must-have treat whenever those hunger pangs for something very sweet and covered with toasted rice comes creeping into your diet. With these guys, you don’t have to worry about high cortisol levels or glucose spikes when you tuck them in your refrigerator or gym bag.
As always, ingredients should be organic where possible.
