I wish I could tell you I made the granola from scratch. I wish I could tell you these are sugar free, and the more you eat the more pounds you lose. But I can’t.
I can tell you that these were super easy and quick (but not quick enough to catch this one getting into trouble). I can tell you they taste better than the regular Rice Krispy Treats, and that my kids are smarter for eating them. So smart in fact, that Xavier totally called me out by saying, “Mom, these are just like Rice Krispy Treats except with granola in them.”
