- I used 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips and 1/2 dark chocolate chips. It doesn’t cut any calories but dark chocolate has antioxidants and by mixing them the taste does not really change
- I used 1/2 cup Smart Balance peanut butter. It has less sugar and healthy omega-3 oils.
- I substituted Earth Balance Spread for the butter. It cuts the saturated fat quite a bit and adds in more healthy oils.
- I used Wheat Chex instead of corn or rice. They are slightly higher in calories but have much more dietary fiber in each serving.
Based on the way it is disappearing, I would say that there are no complaints from the other members of the household!
Again, there is no real way to make this a truly healthy snack, but this recipe makes it a little less naughty. If you try it, please stop back and let me know what you think.
