Almond & Protein Crispie Treats

Protein Crispy Treats Gluten-Free

I don’t know about you but I used to loooove Krispie Treats. You know, the crispy squares of puffed rice that cRRRRRunch-cRRRRRunch-cRRRRRRRunch with every bite? Yeah, those ones. I used to really like them. But I stopped eating them a while back because I realized that they’re not exactly a ‘healthy treat’ – they’re pretty much just… sugar :-/

But I missed them. Wouldn’t you? I mean, there’s just nothing like them! No other food can deliver that sort of stickiness combined with crispiness against a sweet vanilla and that oh-so-special *cRRRRRRRunch!*

Anyways, as soon as I found out about these Protein Crispies, I logged on to their store, added a bag to my virtual cart, entered my delivery details, checked out, and started fantasizing. Finally,  Protein Crispie Treats! Welcome to this recipe!

Ingredients:

1 cup Protein Crispies
4 tablespoons Meridian almond butter
4 tablespoons agave syrup
2 teaspoons sweetener of choice (here, I used toffee because it adds a really nice caramely flavor to the treats)

Directions:

1. Mix everything together in a big bowl.

2. Press the mix onto a silicone tray, cake, or bread pan. I saw silicone because they’re easier to ‘unstick’ that way but if you don’t have any silicone bakeware, just use a regular brownie pan or tray lined with parchment paper.

3. Leave to set in the freezer for an hour.

4. Slice and munch – or keep refrigerated and munch later.
