Millet Puff Krispie Treats + Giveaway

Think rice krispie treat, but made healthier by flipping it to a millet puff kripsie treat. And you want to know what’s great about these, aside from this being a one bowl, no-bake treat (yeah, one bowl and mix it all up)— you can go crazy mixing and matching for different flavor profiles. For this batch I went wholesome by combining NatureBox snacks with millet puffs, granola and dehydrated strawberries.

Now of course, you can and probably will snack on this straight from the bag most of the time, but you know me—I love getting my hands dirty in the kitchen.

That’s exactly what I did with half the goodies in my NatureBox. In fact, I had to hide the bag of Honey Macadamia Pretzel Pops from my boy and Matt, just so they wouldn’t polish it off before I could make this. Along with those, I also included their Roasted Kettle Korn and the other ingredients I listed in the beginning.

The result—looks like I’ll be cranking this out as part of our regular snack rotation. My boys loved it! It’s like a healthier version of a rice krispie square with a sweet and salty twist.

Millet Puff Krispie Treats

Yield: Serves 10-12

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups millet puff
  • 1  cup vanilla granola
  • 1 cup NatureBox Honey Macadamia Pretzel Bites 
  • 1/2 cup NatureBox Roasted Kettle Kernel
  • 1.2 oz freeze dried strawberries
  • 1 10 ounce package large marshmallows
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened

Directions:

Preparation: Line a 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper, extending the paper over the edges of pan.

  1. Place marshmallows and butter in a microwave safe bowl and heat on high for 1-2 minutes until both are melted. Mix and combine all remaining ingredients in a separate bowl then incorporate it into the marshmallow mixture.
  2. Press mixture into parchment lined pan and let stand for 2 hours. Using the edges of the paper, lift uncut bars out of pan. Cut into bars.

 

A few notes:

  • The freeze-dried strawberries will soften as they rest in the bar. Do not substitute for fresh strawberries. You can however, swap out the freeze-dried strawberries for any dried fruits like apricots, mango, prunes and raisins. Keep in mind if you use dried fruit, it will soften the whole bar some from the added moisture. Freeze dried strawberries used in this recipe is from Trader Joes and can be purchased there or through Amazon here.
