While rice krispies treats will always hold a special place in our heart – they are not the most nutritious sweet snack. However, this recipe gives you your childhood favorite with a bit more nutritional content. These treats are made with coconut oil instead of a butter substitute and they also have a healthy dose of matcha which gives them their beautiful color and packs them with anti oxidants. The end result is crispy, chewy, and delicious.

  5. Remove the pan from the heat, add the rice crispies and gently fold it in until the cereal is completely and evenly coated with the marshmallow mixture.
