Healthy Peanut Butter and Chocolate Krispy Treats
Rice Krispies… *snap, crackle, pop*
Too bad that Rice Krispies are full of salt and sugar, not to mention, high glycemic. But if you are like me and love Rice Krispies, then the brown rice version is a godsend!
^^ They taste like the real thing, too!
If you eat this instead of Rice Krispies, you get more fiber, less sugar and a lower-glycemic breakfast. This healthy replacement goes perfectly in these Peanut Butter and Chocolate Krispy Treats! They add an awesome crunch, likable texture, and great taste.
Mmmm… peanut butter!
A jar isn’t recycled without being scraped completely clean!
These bars are held together by peanut butter alone, unlike similar recipes that use peanut butter and butter (but the butter is totally unnecessary! These bars stayed together very well)

I am sure you have heard that dark chocolate is healthy for you. In moderation, of course, dark chocolate can lower your LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol) and lower blood pressure levels. The milk chocolate variety isn’t as healthy as the dark variety because a compound in milk interferes with the antioxidants in dark chocolate (and it’s stuffed with more sugar). That is why I made the chocolate topping with 100% Cacao Unsweetened Chocolate.
If you don’t want to buy a whole jug of the egg white protein powder, you can buy single serving packets at Whole Foods, GNC or Amazon.
These no-bake, low-glycemic treats are delicious. They were gone within minutes!

Make these, and oh my goodness, you and your friends (if you give them away) will be in heaven!
