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?

Oh yes.

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.

  1. Loving the sound of these! I have been on a total maple kick lately, munching nonstop on maple granola. This might be my next treat 🙂

  2. I made these over the weekend for a party and they were a huge hit! Many people asked for the recipe!

  3. Shared these with my boss. We both love ’em. I didn’t have pecan butter, so I used peanut butter mixed with raw coconut butter. I made it more like 1/3 c rather than 1/2, and they came out great! I’m wondering about the nutritional info. How much fat per serving?

      If you used 1/3 cup rather than 1/2 cup and sliced the treats into 9, there should be approximately 5-7g of fat per serving (depends on the products you used). But remember, they are healthy fats!
      Oh, and your boss BETTER give you a promotion 😉

  4. I would like to post your recipe for Maple Butter Pecan Krispy Treats. Looks delicious. As you can see I would link it to your site. Also, I am going to have another page, where I will post recipes and have direct links to the pages.
