Peanut Butter Granola Bars/Rice Krispies
I always buy granola bars but I'm tired of all the added sugars, weird chemicals, and unneccessary stuff in them, not to mention the price(think KIND, Luna, and Cliff) I thought, I HAVE all this stuff at home, why not just make them?
With granola bars, it's hard to find the right balanace. High fiber(Fiber One, Fiber Plus) bars=high SUGAR bars. Kids bars(quaker chewy) usually are whimpy in the fiber department, but also give you a hit of sugar, along with all those franken-ingredients, and oddly enough, they started putting OTHER cereals and unhealthy stuff into bars(have you seen those "treat bars") The expensive nutrition bars aren't really what I need either. They have too many calories for a little snack and tend to give me too MUCH energy for a late-night snack.
Growing up my mom always used to make rice krispies, so this is a combonation of a rice krispie and a peanut butter granola bar. This isn't the "healthy" of bar, packed with fiber or dried fruits or nuts(I only had dried apricots and cashews, not a bad combo, but I'm not gaga over either) but this is still a reasonable alternative to others.Submitted by: NICOLEFISFRESH
