Healthy Maple Butter Pecan Krispy Treats
These Healthy Maple Butter Pecan Krispy Treats beat those lame-o store-bought treats, by a long shot!
These are flavorful.
These have texture.
These are… healthy?
Sweet, rich and decadent treats that are also whole grain, refined sugar free and gluten free (but you would never know!) Totally different than the “food-like” products at the grocery store, you know, that “stuff” in the blue wrapper? Those are 100% artificial, full of refined white sugar, high-fructose corn syrup and unhealthy fats. Grrrross!
These are supremely chewy and ultimately sweet. These are some healthy snacks that you can sink your teeth into.
- 150g (5 cups) Crispy Brown Rice Cereal
- 72g (¾ cup) Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
- 2 tbs Ground Flaxseed
- ¼ tsp Salt
- 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
- ⅛ tsp Ground Nutmeg
- ⅛ tsp Ground Cloves
- 128g (½ cup) Pecan Butter
- 126g (¼ cup + 2 tbs) Pure Maple Syrup
- 84g (¼ cup) Brown Rice Syrup
- 1 tsp Stevia Extract
- 1 tsp Natural Maple Flavor
- ½ tsp Natural Butter Flavor
- 64g (2 scoops) Vanilla Whey Protein Powder
Line a 9x9" brownie pan with parchment paper both ways.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, stir together the rice cereal, oats, flax, salt and spices.
In a large microwave-safe bowl, stir together the pecan butter, maple syrup, brown rice syrup, stevia, maple flavor and butter flavor. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir, then microwave for another 30 seconds. Then, stir in the protein powder.
Dump the dry ingredients over the wet ingredients and fold together. Feel free to fold in some chopped pecans!
Scoop the mixture into the prepared pan and flatten out. Cover and refrigerate for 3+ hours. Slice and serve!
If you want an extra kick of maple and protein, top these treats with this Maple Icing!
