Better Than Rice Crispy Treats
1 cup peanut butter (creamy or chunky and all natural of course)
5 cups brown rice crispy cereal (found at health food store)
½ cup ground golden flax seed
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 -1 cup Sucanat or turbinado (raw)sugar
1 cup honey
Bring peanut butter, Sucanat, and honey to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly to prevent scorching. As soon as it's bubbling, remove from heat, add vanilla, rice crispy cereal and ground flax seed. Press into a cookie sheet size pan and cut into bars, eat when cooled.
P.S. From my Sis, I don't usually do this but my Mom and Sister do and it is very tasty!!! My Sister mentioned it in the comments so I thought I would just put it here! Thanks Sis!
"I know you know this...but it is also very yummy to melt together 1 cup of carob chips and 1/2 cup of peanut butter and 'frost' the top of the rice crispy treats before you cut them. Put them in the fridge so they set up quicker and then....wah lah! Scotcheroos! :)"
