Today is…National Peanut Butter Day! Before you leave in a rage, know this is the last “National Food Day” post I’ll give you in awhile. And this recipe may barely suffice for peanut butter day. While there is peanut butter in these snack bars, there are tons of other delicious ingredients too – pretzels, almonds, rolled oats, marshmallows, chocolate rice cereal…These bars come together so well you can’t really say peanut butter is the star…All of the ingredients compliment each other.
These are like rice crispy treats on crack. Or I guess you could say an even better version of the classic no-bake cookie. I found the original recipe in Cooking Light, and they call them Snack Bars so you can almost justify that they are totally healthy! One of the ingredients is rolled oats! But of course, I added a little bit more butter and used Cocoa Krispies instead of “chocolate oat” cereal.
