Protein-Packed Rice Krispie Treats

4 Dec

Mmmm, I really love rice krispie treats, and at my company’s cafeteria, they have these huge blocks of them at lunch. But I know how much butter goes into them. 😦 So instead, I revamped this with some healthier ingredients. Yay for a mid-afternoon snack with protein and not-too-much fatty stuff. Mmmm!

Ingredients

  • Rice krispies (~3 cups)
  • 3/4 c almond butter
  • ~10 marshmallows
  • 1/3 c honey
  • 1.5 scoops of protein powder (I used chocolate whey protein)
  • dash vanilla
  • dash cinnamon

Instructions

  • Melt almond butter, marshmallows, honey, and vanilla on low heat in a med-sized pot
  • Add protein powder when melty and sticky
  • Finally, mix in rice krispies until thoroughly sticky and coated
  • Transfer to non-stick baking pan or parchment-covered pan, press down until flat and even. Once cool, cut into fun triangle shapes, and pack into your lunches as a special treat. Mmmm.
