Good for You Crispy Treats (Rice Krispy Bars)

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by WI Cheesehead

This uses gluten free brown rice cereal. It can also be dairy free if you sub. margarine for the butter. Kids liked this. It does not stay together as well as regular Rice Krispy treats, but I don't think anything will that doesn't have melted marshmallows! BTW it makes enough to put in a 9x13 pan if you don't have a 9x9. Cooking time is freezer time.

I have made this recipe over a dozen times ... a winner EVERY time ... I've substituted dried cranberries a few times ... you can't go wrong with this one. Work, friends, family - recipe gets requested a lot. Thanks for a healthy variation of such a classic ... I like this one best!
