Peanut Butter Cup Crispy Treats

Peanut Butter Cup Crispy Treats

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.

Fitness Ingredients

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.



Peanut Butter Cup Crispy Treats


P28 recipe

quest peanut butter cups


Make the "goo":

Mix these in a medium bowl with a spoon:

Hack Job:

  • 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).

El Dumpo:

  • 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).

Spread it:

  • 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.
