My favorite treat to either buy or bake since I was a young girl is rice Krispie squares. As an adult, I have less of a sweet tooth so I now make them without marshmallows, use brown rice instead of the typical white, and I add dark chocolate to satisfy any sweet cravings of mine. Nut butter works well to hold these treats together and provides heart-healthy fats, a high amount of protein, and fibre. If you need to sub nut butter, please try sunflower seed butter or tahini. Makes a great option for school lunches too! I promise you will love this recipe and you will likely be eating out of the pan, like me! They really hit the spot. Enjoy!
