If you want an easy no-bake snack that your kids can make with a little adult supervision, look no further! This is a healthy, low-cost version of Rice Krispie Treats® – instead of lots of gooey marshmallow, it uses peanut butter and honey as the glue to hold everything together without baking. You’re kids will LOVE these crispy peanut butter and chocolate treats!
We’ve substituted whole grain puffed rice cereal (with no added sugar or salt) for the Rice Krispies®, and have included cashews for extra protein. Serve them with a big glass of milk, and you have the perfect after-school treat!
