These four-ingredient Rice Krispie Treats are made with nut butter, cacao powder and honey instead of marshmallow and refined sugar.

Because they’re chock-full of healthy fats and protein they’re extremely filling, making them a great mid-day or pre-post-workout snack. This recipe is so easy to make and is a fun, healthy treat for both kids and adults.

Because they’re made with a few staple ingredients, they’re extremely easy to whip up and are a much healthier alternative to traditional Rice Krispies. They double as both a snack and a sweet treat, so we’ve enjoyed them mid-day and after dinner as a dessert!

A few tips:

  • These treats can be made with any nut butter of your choice, crunchy or smooth. If you have a nut allergy, we would recommend tahini or sunflower butter.
  • We’ve tried both of these rice puff cereals and found that they work great:
  • To keep your treats firm and crunchy, store them in an airtight container in the fridge.
  • These treats are freezer-friendly and keep well frozen for up to 2 months.
