A collection of recipes assembled as part of the RecipeZaar Back-to-School Special. These recipes have been selected because they help introduce more fruits, vegetables and dairy into the family meal plan. At the same time they are low in fat and have low to moderate amounts of added sugar.
These are really tasty, although different from the usual marshmallow treats. They hold together very well, but remained a bit too sticky after cooling. Try keeping them in the refrigerator. I found this recipe at lalecheleague.org.
This recipe was recommended to me by my nutritionist. The sweetness and crunch of the granola and the tanginess of the raisins compliment each other wonderfully. My friends and family simply cannot stop eating it...I usually make a double batch.
Now that the word is out that chocolate is good for you (BUT only if not mixed with milk) why not have it for breakfast? This makes a nice change of pace from plain oatmeal. Karl did not think this was sweet enough, but when he sprinkled a little brown sugar over he was happy. Serve with ricemilk or soymilk to get the full advantage of those cocoa flavinoids.
This is the recipe for the original rice krispies treats squares...It never fails! Plus, it is a great way to use up a box of cereal! For best results, use fresh marshmallows. I have replaced the butter once with Mott's Healthy Baking butter or oil substitute (it was basically an unsweetened apple sauce) and they still turned out great!
