Hey, we're back! March was a trying month and we ate a lot of comfort food. Sophisticated comfort food. For grown-ups (and kids with mature palates). Like these brown rice crispy treats.
Sara over at Sprouted Kitchen created this clever recipe that subs in brown rice syrup for the traditional marshmallow creme, swaps white rice crispies for healthier brown rice cereal, and opts for almond butter instead of boring old peanut butter. We made them vegan by using margarine instead of butter, but I suspect coconut oil would be even better.
A note about brown rice syrup: Go buy some now! It has a mildly sweet, toasted flavor. I keep it around for making frequent batches of my favorite fat-free granola (recipe here).
