Better-4-You Rice Crispy Treats
No marshmallows needed for this version, as the combination of cashew butter and raw honey makes for a beautiful substitute. These treats are sweet, chewy, and most importantly, lacking in the inflammatory vegetables oils, corn syrup, artificial flavors, preservatives, and monoglycerides (i.e. trans fats) found in the store-bought junk! 1 Earthfood per serving: ♥

Ingredients
  • 1/2cup raw honey
  • 2/3 cup raw cashew butterAdd 2 cups raw cashews to your food processor and blend until it’s the consistency of almond butter. Stop to scrap the sides a few times during processing. You will have a bit leftover, so store in a sealed container and use for shakes!
  • 2tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4tsp. Sea salt
  • 4cups puffed brown rice cerealI used Arrowhead Mills Puffed Rice Cereal (the only ingredient is puffed whole grain brown rice)
Instructions
  1. Combine raw honey, prepared cashew butter, vanilla and salt in a large bowl. Stir well. Add the puffed rice and mix with a spatula until combined.
  2. Line a 9×9 baking dish with parchment paper and pour mixture into the dish. Press down with the spatula to smooth out and place in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Once the bars are hardened, cut into 16 squares and store in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
