1/2 C. chopped TOASTED ALMONDS
1/2 C. mix of toasted. SESAME SEEDS AND chopped DRIED CRANBERRIES
1/2 STICK MARGARINE or butter, MELTED
3/4 C. Crunchy ALMOND BUTTER
1 C. BROWN RICE SYRUP
1/2 tsp. KOSHER SALT
1 T. ALMOND EXTRACT
Combine crisped rice through cranberries.
Over medium heat, melt margerine or butter, add almond butter ,rice syrup and S. Stir well to heat and combine quickly without scorching. When hot and well combined, add almond extract.While warm, pour over dry mixture and mix well.
Pam 9 x 13 pan (or something close to that). Pour in the mixture and pat down with hands dipped in cold water. Chill and cut into squares.

Thanks for the source but sorry, no. I found your recipe when searching "brown rice krispies". Not wanting to use the oven, and with stale ordinary rice krispy cereal and an ancient container of Fluff on hand, I made RKTs. I tossed in some Trader Joe's freeze-dried banana, which turned them into crack for me! So now I want to try other f/d fruit and since I sub brown rice for white in all my cooking.....
i used to run a healthy kids cooking class at my last job, and the healthified crispy rice treats were always a hit with the kids *and* the parents. i love that they're so versatile.
sunflower butter is a great alternative for kids with nut allergies, and there are so many ways to go with the fruit - dried cherries. chopped dried strawberries, currants, chopped dried apricots...i'm not a fan of almond extract (as an ingredient in general, it has nothing to do with your recipe!) but i always add vanilla to mine, and sometimes a little cinnamon depending on the other flavors.
