I make these using puffed quinoa instead of crispy rice; more protein & just as yummy.
I love the idea – thanks for sharing! This is a recipe that has some many variations. Some of our clients add protein powder for a sports recovery bar or you can add hemp hearts or just about any type of diced dried fruit. yummmmm!
