Healthy Peanut Butter & Honey Rice Krispie SnacksKelsey Banfield
Jennifer and I share a love of Rice Krispies Treats and healthy snack food for our kids. This is why we decided to team up today to bring you two variations on a delicious healthy treat. For my version of Peanut Butter & Honey Rice Krispie Snacks I stir together Rice Krispies, honey, peanut butter, oats, dried cherries and mini-chocolate chips. They kind of taste like trail mix, only so much better. I like to roll them in little balls and put them in mini-muffin cups for serving. This way they can be served up at home or to a crowd. They have become especially popular at playdates with my daughter and her friends. I am always happy to make up a batch for them because I know that contain natural ingredients without any of the harsh preservatives found on store-bought snacks foods.
Peanut Butter & Honey Rice Krispie Snacks
1/3 cup all natural honey
¼ cup crunchy peanut butter
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup crispy rice cereal
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oat
¼ cup dried cranberries
¼ cup mini chocolate chips
Melt butter, honey, and peanut butter in a large saucepan. Stir well over medium heat until it is a smooth mixture. Remove from heat and pour in the cereal, dried cranberries, oats, and chocolate chips. Mix well. The chocolate chips will melt a bit. Scoop the mixture into mini-muffin cups and refrigerate until set!
