Cheerio Treats

KristineDesserts, Kid Friendly, Recipes9 Comments

Quick and easy treats for the kids. I’m always looking for new ideas! While my Healthy No-Marshmallow Rice Krispie Treats are a hit with the girls, here’s another great twist on a cereal treat that is just as quick to prepare!

I must say, I’m really finding inspiration lately from Pinterest. I was inspired by this recipe, but it contained corn syrup and sugar, so I wanted to make it healthier.  The kids loved these, as did my husband, and brother-in-law, considering they polished them off!

Considering they were done in about 10 minutes, these are great to make for home, or even to bring to an event. You any sort of nut or seed butter you’d like, and you can totally use the sticky sweetener of choice. I prefer to use brown rice syrup as its the thickest, and does the best job of holding the cereal together. But its totally up to you!
