Rice Krispy treats with a twist

It had been a long day…a rough night that lead to an early morning and to be honest, when my 3-year old asked me if we could make rice krispy treats I could not put up a argument! So when Colt went down for a nap to the kitchen we went…

I decided to switch them up a bit and tossed out the margarine and subbed some almond butter. Granted I wasn’t ignoring the fact that I was about to dump a pile of sugary marshmallows into a bowl, but for some reason the substitution of the almond butter made me feel a wee bit better 🙂

I had a little taste tester that got a bit out of control so my ratios were a little off

I stuck with the “original” rice krispy treats recipe and just left the margarine out and put in about 2 TBS of all natural almond butter. Since I was short some of the sweets I put about 5 cups (rather than 6 of the cereal) into the melted mixture, poured and pressed into a 9×13 greased pan and BAM – Tasty Rice Krispy treats with a tad bit of protein!

Little tip: If you run your (clean) hand under cold water you can press the mixture into the pan without getting so sticky! Just continue rinsing your hand and pressing into the pan!
