A childhood classic made healthier! No marshmallow rice crispy treats make for a satisfying snack with brain-boosting power.
The mere sight of rice crispy treats takes me back to that horrid time when I almost burned the marshmallow mixture while doing a live demonstration for my classmates in French. Leave it to me to ruin the easiest thing to make in the kitchen, right? I blame it on my nerves and my struggle with the French language. Never mind the fact that I couldn’t even break an egg at that time.
Let it be known that I haven’t screwed up one of the most bullet-proof recipes available on this planet since then. I’m also now a proficient egg-cracker ;).
There’s nothing wrong with enjoying the classic version with ooey-gooey marshmallows every now and then. However, it is laden with refined sugar and other artificial ingredients. Therefore, when I was given the task to come up with a locker-friendly, back-to-school snack by the Food Network’s Healthy Eats blog, I knew what I had to do.
Enter my Brain-Boosting Rice Crispy Treats made with cleaner ingredients and healthy fats and protein to help prevent blood sugar spikes. After all, we want to promote our young minds to be more focused and energized at school rather than bouncing off the walls. You know what will also help? Eating breakfast!
In any case, head on over to the Healthy Eats blog for the easy and customizable recipe and find out what makes them brain-boosting!
