This recipe is a cross between a typical energy bar and a candy bar. Healthier than candy, better tasting than energy bars. It is based on the classic rice crispies treats, but tastes MUCH more interesting.

BC Bar


1-1/3C Quick Oats
1/3C Grape Nuts Cereal
2/3C Coarsely chopped almonds
4C Rice Crispies Cereal
2T Sesame seeds

3T Smart Balance Spread
8oz Marshmallows
