Another good and easy idea from the hostess of them all....Martha Stewart. These No-Bake Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Bars were a cinch to make! I even considered having one of them with my cup of coffee for breakfast! But resisted the temptation.....
I almost went to Sprouts to find a brown rice cereal, but then figured I should just use the Rice Krispies I already had in my pantry for this treat. For the peanut butter, I used a natural (salt added) creamy peanut butter from Safeway's Open Nature.
