Energy! Right now!
“I feel like I need some more fuel. I feel like I need something sweet. I feel like I need something fat. I feel like I need something chocolaty. I feel like I need some crunchy food in my mouth. Oh, but I also feel like I should eat some kind of a healthy snack…
Sweet, fat, chocolaty and crunchy? Isn’t this usually something bad and unhealthy? So, does this sound impossible and unrealistic to you in terms of health?
No! Wait no longer to make these black ‘n white crispies! This snack fits perfectly to these mentions, including the healthy snack wish thought.
Me and my husband love crispy foods. I mostly like the crunchy foods that are sort of airy and light weighing. There are tons of bars and squares being sold in the stores that are crunchy, light, crispy, etc. But none of them fits my needs and wishes in terms of a healthy snack.
So that’s why I decided to try to make my own favorite crispy bar. Since we and many others like chocolate and some kind of nut butter a lot, I decided to add at least these 2 ingredients to my crisps. We like All natural peanut butter from Kraft a lot. It is made of 100% peanuts and affordable too!
And the name shows the other part already: crisps. I wanted to use either whole wheat puffs or rice crispies. I chose to go with rice crispies this time, since then more people are suitable to eat this snack (e.g. gluten-intolerant people).
My first attemp to make my own crisp bars was a success right away! I was amazed by the result and I was happy I wrote everything down. The fact that these crisps only contain healthy ingredients, makes me even feel better about it! Besides this, it is also very easy to make. You don’t need your oven and the recipe is open for alternatives (see some at the end of this post). Thinking of a name of this new snack didn’t take a long time either. Looking at the crisps right away shows you the black and white colors, so the name was easy: Black ‘n White crispies!
I hope you enjoy these crunchy peanut butter chocolate squares as much as we do. Please share your experiences and thoughts about it!
