Move Over Rice Krispie Squares!

 As a mother of three who works in the natural health industry, I am always looking for creative ideas for healthy snacks and treats for the kids.  What kid doesn’t enjoy rice krispie squares? I remember making them with my mom when I was growing up, insisting that I wanted to help only to give up after only a few seconds because it was so sticky and almost impossible to stir!  As a parent, knowing what these squares are made of makes me cringe yet now that Kellogg’s has come out with individually wrapped squares I bet they are packed in many children’s lunch boxes.

I recently came across a recipe from Julie Daniluk RHN, host of the Healthy Gourmet for Balanced Planets Super Squares.  Along the same lines as rice krispie squares only packed with nutrition, these squares are simply delightful.  What’s even better – kids love them!!!
