Reviews forQuick Crisp Snack Bars
"These tasted great. I took a tip from previous reviewer and used coco rice crispies. YES! They do taste just like nutty budy bars. Ours did 'crumble' a lot but kids have away of making a lot of crumbs!"
"easy to make and tasted great! Mine didn't hold together too well, though. Maybe I didn't mix it well enough, or I might try a different brand of peanut butter next time."
"Very simple and very good .. too bad peanut products are not allowed in schools, these would be great in lunches."
"Already made these twice!!!! How perfect these bars are and I don't think twice about giving my kids an entire bar, unlike normal rice crispy bars full of processed sugar!!!! Thank you thank you thank you!"
"These were easy to make and were fairly good. I took a double batch to a church fellowship and only brought one bar home. However, my husband didn't really care for the flavor so I probably won't make them again."
"These are so good. I put them in my husbands lunches for a heathier snack than store bought breakfast bars."
"I used Cocoa Krispies...tasted like a Reese's bar...delicious"
"I like to make them with natural peanut butter (nothing but ground peanuts)...you don't get any of the additional sugar or oils. The honey adds enough sweetness. And I use Cheerios instead of a rice cereal to add fiber and healthy whole grain."
"Excellent for school lunches--and for the Mom who made them, too!"
"I made the bars with almond butter since my son cannot have peanuts. It was a great (although more expensive) substitute. We really liked them--it's a great protein source for breakfast if you're short on time."
