Whole Wheat Rice Crispie Squares..Seriously!


I picked up the book Deceptively Delicious - how to fool your kids and slip healthy bits into their food. 
Does it work - no, but we are enjoying the meals while our girl eats yogurt, toast and shredded cheese.
There is one though - one miracle recipe that is a big hit...
It's whole wheat organic rice crispie squares with flax meal! 


Put one package of marshmallows in a pot with 1 tablespoon butter or margarine.


I love that she doesn't think I will notice all the wee bites out of the marshmallows.
Melt them on the stove.


Now here is the twist..add six cups of organic whole wheat rice crispies and 1/4 cup of ground flax meal.
Mix it all up and drop it into a lightly buttered dish to cool.


Clean up.


Just like the regular squares, but deceptively nutritious!

So, the name and principal works.. in this case.

But, try pulling the 'cocoa with sweet potato' wool over on a 9 year old - it's not pretty.

And when you realize she has eaten a quarter of the pan, you think..hey, super, she's had her fair share of ruffage!

I have been awarded three stylish blogger awards in the last two days.  I blush!

Something you don't know about me..
I'm learning to play the guitar so I can sing around our fire pit.  You are all welcome to join me.
I will serve homemade marshmallow shots with Baileys.
