Frugal Foodie Friday: No-Bake Chocolate Chip Rice Crispy Treats


Healthy Chocolate Chip Crispy Cereal Treats (Gluten-Free / Casein-Free)Do you ever find yourself hungry for something a little sweet, but not wanting to go the full-blown dessert route or ruin dinner? Enter the health-ified Chocolate Chip Crispy Treats Recipe. This version classifies as a relatively nutritious, hybrid snack-treat that is not too sweet, yet slightly indulgent.

So what makes these different from your ordinary Snap, Crackle, and Pop version? Let's see … no refined sugars, in fact pretty low in sugar overall; two whole grain cereals for the price of one; coconut oil instead of butter or margarine; a little flax seed and nut butter for good measure; and, well, chocolate is a health food now, right? Plus, it is natural dairy-free (casein-free) and can be made vegan and gluten-free in a pinch. See the full post on One Frugal Foodie for the recipe.
