A treat ~

When is a rice krispy treat, not a kiddie treat?


When they are made with browned butter, creamy roasted almond butter and topped with flakes of sea salt.

Almond Browned Butter Krispie Treats
3 Tbs butter +2Tbs butter
1 bag miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup Almond butter
5 cups rice crispies
1 Tbs coarse salt
Using 2 Tbs butter, coat the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish. Melt the 3 Tbs of butter in a large non stick pan over low heat. The butter will melt then slowly turn to a nutty brown color. Add the marshmallows and stir until melted. Add the Almond butter and stir until creamy. Add the cereal in batches, stirring until blended.

Press mixture into the buttered baking dish. Sprinkle with sea salt.

I don't know that I'd call rice crispy treats 'healthy eating' . . . but these are gluten free.
And yummy!
The only thing missing is a little dark chocolate . . . But that is an idea for next time.

What is your favorite today?
I am also linking to Frugal Friday at the Shabby Nest.
