Summertime always makes me think of road trips. Once school lets out we would be in the car headed off on family adventures. Being in a big family we had a huge van growing up (it was known for always being a mess inside), it was a like a second home taking us from town to town. I loved that van and now that I'm older I understand why my mama didn't like certain food coming into the car. Especially during the summer. Things that melt, were not meant for "van life". One treat that was always a safe bet, Rice crispy treats! I have also learned through the years that my fond memories of rice crispy "treats" are really not the best way to treat my body. In one little pack of the average store-bought crispy treat you have things like:
SUGAR, SALT, MALT FLAVORING, NIACINAMIDE, REDUCED IRON, RIBOFLAVIN, FOLIC ACID), CORN SYRUP, SUGAR, GELATIN, ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR FRUCTOSE, SOYBEAN, AND PALM OIL. (Then the scary uncertain things like) TBHQ DATEM, ACETYLATED MONOGLYCERIDES, BHT PALMITATE, CORN SYRUP SOLIDS, DEXTROSE, GLYCERIN, NIACINAMIDE, PYRIDOXINE HYDROCHLORIDE, THIAMIN HYDROCHLORIDE, RIBOFLAVIN.
To avoid these chemicals make your own!! Just by using brands that have minimal and quality ingredients can make these a true treat for your body to enjoy!
Using the "classic recipe" just modified
6 cups Crispy Brown Rice Cereal
2 TBL Organic Grass fed Butter (or vegan butter)
1 10 oz bag Dandies Vanilla Marshmallows
Add Mini Marshmallows & butter in a microwave safe bowl and melt together. Once completely combined, you should have a fluffy/stringy texture.
Add the Cereal and mix until the completely coated with the Marshmallow Mixture.
Spoon into a 9x11" shallow pan.
Press down into the pan using a silicone spatula for best results.
Allow to completely cool before eating.
I like to use this cereal because it has minimal ingredients: Organic brown rice, organic brown rice syrup, sea salt.
like to use these marshmallows because they have minimal recognizable ingredients: Tapioca Syrup, Cane Sugar, Filtered Water, Tapioca Starch, Carrageenan, Soy Protein, Natural Vanilla Flavor
