The kids love marshmallow krispie treats - but there is so little actual nutritional value in them! I experimented with several high protein/high fiber cereals and created this recipe. I used Kashi GoLean Crunch in the red box - the highest protein and fiber content of this line of the Kashi. Please note there are three different 'GoLean' varieties made by Kashi and they vary slightly by protein/fiber content. My recipe makes 18 bars in my glass cake-pan sized pan, which produces bars with 5 g protein and 3 g fiber per bar. AND MY PICKY KIDS WILL EAT THEM! Mix/match/substitute any cereal/dried fruit/nuts you like.
