Almond Butter Krispies Treats

Let me tell you how this would all go down if I was not currently pregnant…

These delicious almond butter Rice Krispies treats would have been made with unsweetened puffed brown rice cereal, probably a lot less sugar, and 90% dark chocolate chunks.  But guess what?  My belly is with child and wants SWEETS.  So, that’s what I gave it today.

Pregnancy is a funny thing.  The cravings get pretty intense, and when I get hungry for something, I have to have it.  Several months ago, I NEEDED Rice Krispies and bought a huge box.  However, once I got home, the thought of cereal made me nauseous.  In fact, the box has been sitting in our cabinet, unopened, ever since.  Snap, Crackle, and Pop finally saw the light of day this past Sunday night when I made a batch of chocolate peanut butter krispies treats for our dinner guests.  Problem was I was then left with half a box of unwanted cereal.  What to do…what to do?

 Make almond butter Rice Krispies Treats…and throw in those peanut M&M’s, also purchased months ago, that have been sitting around ever since my MUST HAVE PEANUT M&M’s attack.

After baby arrives, I will return to my usual low sugar HEABified recipes…I think. 😉
