Snap Crackle & Pop!
I think rice cakes taste like styrofoam. Furthermore, they have no nutritional benefit and have an uber-high glycemic index. I can think of many other carbohydrates that would be much more appropriate, but I digress.
My Crispy Treats are perfect for fitness folks because they include your "typical dietary staples":
- rice cakes
- whey protein
- peanut butter
Note my crispy treats DO NOT contain marshmallows. Did you honestly think I'd use marshmallows? Marshmallows are ghost poo.
- P28 High Protein Spread (White Chocolate)
- BSN Syntha-6 Whey (Peanut Butter Cookie)
- Quest Cravings Protein Peanut Butter Cups
- Walden Farms Calorie Free/Sugar Free Syrup (Chocolate)
- Plain (unsalted) Rice Cakes (ie. Quaker)
- Chocolate PB2
Make the "goo":
Mix these in a medium bowl with a spoon:
- 1/3 scoop BSN Syntha-6 Whey (Peanut Butter Cookie)
- 1 TBSP P28 High Protein Spread (white chocolate)
- 1 TBSP chocolate PB2
- 2 TBSP water
- Cut a Rice Cake in half. Use your hands to break it into tiny little pieces (make it look like Kellogg's Rice Krispies).
- Cut 1 Quest Protein Peanut Butter Cup into tiny little pieces (use a knife, duh).
- Dump the rice cake particles into the goo. Mix like a mofo. Coat all the crispies.
- Dump 1/2 the Quest PB CUP pieces into the goo. Mix gently, so as not to break these fragile little dudes. Save the other 1/2 for the topping (later).
- Grab a small rectangular or square dish (glass, tupperware, silicone). I used a mini silicone loaf pan.
- Line it with parchment paper. Or you can use wax paper or even plastic wrap.
- Spread the mixture evenly into the pan.
- Place a sheet of wax or parchment paper on top and PRESS DOWN as FIRMLY as you can. FIRM! Use your mooscles.
- Add the other 1/2 of the Peanut Butter Cups to the Topping (It looks pretty)
- Optional: slather with 1.5 TBSP Walden Farms Chocolate Syrup. Why not? It's calorie free and sugar free. Yum.
- Freeze for an hour before slicing. Eat immediately or else store them in the fridge or freezer.
=>My recipe is better than conventional Rice Krispies Treats. Holla.
- Mine (unlike "their version") doesn't rip your gums off when you bite into them.
- Mine has way less sugar and way more protein.
For the entire recipe (I cut it into 6 squares):
