    J-Lynn's Note:

    This is very similar to already-posted recipes, but with healthier ingredients. I experimented with my favorite no-bake cookie recipe and was delighted to find that there's almost no difference in taste!! I can't keep my hands off these! By the way, the dates I use are whole pitted dates, that I "dice" with a scissors. I'm not sure if the pre-chopped, flour coated version would work.

      4 1/2 stars addicting. DD (toddler) liked them too but DH did not as he doesn't like that cereal. Id describe them as having a good cooked date flavour and crunch. I used a bit less honey in replacement of the rice syrup as I didn't have any. That worked fine. I replaced the butter with mainly canola oil to be dairy free. I'm sure butter would taste even better. I used sea salt for the salt and fresh Iranian dates, which are way softer than what you usually buy in a grocery store. They worked well. For the brown Rice Krispies I used a gluten-free, corn-free version from my local health food store. I had to use sweetend shredded dry coconut as it was what I had on hand. These look and taste like something to have at Christmas time. I would make these again.
