Need Cybergranny to help me

Recommended Posts

Can you calculate the points of this recipe for me? I don't have one of those programs that does this (Master Cook...I think).

 

Crispy Rice Treats

2 C. crispy rice cereal

1 C quick cooking oats

1/4 C. sheat bran

1/4 C. lite corn syrup

1/4 C. brown sugar

1/4 C. lite peanut butter (soy nut butter or almond butter)

1/4 C. mixed dried fruits in bite size pieces

1 T. vanilla extract

 

In large bowl, combine cereal, oats, bran & dried fruit. Mix the corn syrup in a pot & heat over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved. Add the peanut butter & mix. When well combined, turn off heat & add the vanilla.

Pour the mixture over the cereal mixture & blend. Press mixture into a pan & cut into bars. It should keep for a month in a sealed container.

 

This recipe is an alternative for those Krispy Bars made from marsmallows, etc.

 

It sounds really good. I don't know how many it will serve, but am guessing you spread it in a 9" x 13" pan.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Here is your recipe, I am sorry that I didn't get back to you right away. I had to change the wording order of some of the ingredients for MC to accept it and also, I have no soy or almond butter so the recipe is pointed with regular peanut butter. It is still 2 points for the larger bar and 1 point for the regular size. I don't think changing to a lite butter is going to change that because it is still a lot of fat. This looks like a very good recipe! Thanks for posting it.
