    In college, you could find me in the dining hall eating a microwaved rice krispie treat at least 5 days a week.

    I die for rice krispie treats, but not those ones in the blue wrapper from the mass produced company. I’m talking homemade rice krispie treats that are actually the best things on the planet.

    They are usually filled with a ton of added sugar and marshmallows, which isn’t something I like to eat often. It has taken me way too long to finally make my own Healthier Nutty Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats, but they are finally here. And they are GOOD! Like finger-licking, going-back-for-seconds kind of good.

    And the best part? No marshmallows are needed! Now don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with marshmallows every once in awhile (hello s’mores), but when I want a krispie treat often, I’d prefer no corn syrups!

    These Healthier Nutty Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats also have a chocolatey blast in it since I use One Degree Organic Food’s Sprouted Brown Rice Cacao Crisps. They are amazing. Think cacao krispies but healthier, easier to digest and organic. Hi, that is heavenly!

    One Degree Organics makes all sprouted grains, flours, breads, tortillas and more. You guys see me post about them often and there is a reason. Their products are unreal and I am so grateful to partner with a brand that makes such quality ingredients for baking, cooking and more.

    Instead of the marshmallows, we use creamy nut butter, maple syrup and coconut oil for that sticky mixture. These Healthier Nutty Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats are also Dad-approved, which is not an easy task. My Dad is truly a human garbage disposal, but when it comes to desserts he likes the classics. So when I know he goes for seconds and thirds on one of my recipes, it must be really good.
