Made these at Christmas and the children were very very disappointed. It's not a good alternative for rice krispy treats. Once the kids took one bite, they begged for the traditional version. Even my adult... healthy food conscious group passed by them at the dessert bar. Skip them if you have kids in the house. Someone suggested trying different Go Lean cereals but I wouldn't bother now that I know what I know. This is the ONLY time I have ever given any recipe one star on this website.

A great twist on the classic Rice Krispy treat! We used Kashi GoLean Crunch as suggested (considered using a FiberOne) and they turned out great! They're a little tough but my husband and kids love them!

Easy, Easy - great to make with children and I let my husband help, seeing that my kids are married and live out of state! Its good exercise for me because I have arthritis in my hands, I get tired and my husband takes over! You can use Cheerios, Quaker Sqs, any of those kinds of cereals that have a little backbone to them. Ps-I just love this site, you can fined just about anything!!! Bless you!!!

Just made these using Multi-Grain Cheerios, dried cranberries, dried apricots and cinnamon. Seriously delicious. Nice and crunchy, just sweet enough, will add nuts when not serving to the children (allergies), but a definite make-again!
