If a rice crispie square had a baby with a chocolate granola bar, it would taste like these bars! Yummy!
I have always been good at rationalizing my food choices. For example, if I eat an organic salad with homemade balsamic dressing for lunch, it’s ok if I eat McDonald’s for dinner, because it balances out… Right?
You can look at these bars with the same logic, they are made with a little brown sugar, honey, organic oats, hemp hearts, and flax seeds… And that balances out the fact that I also added butter, rice crispies, chocolate chips, and marshmallows…right?
Well, they have got to be a little bit better for you than plain rice crispie squares! That’s the way I see it! Let’s call it optimism!
To make these, I started by melting a couple tablespoons of butter along with brown sugar and honey.
