Low Carb, Sugar Free Rice Krispy Bars? YES! Protein packed low carb, sugar free rice krispie style bars (updated for 2019 with a new link for the protein crispies!)

By replacing regular ingredients with something similar, but healthier in order to copy a favorite, a rice krispy bar is now packed with protein, sugar free and lower carb.   I made the bars my regular way - but used sugar free ingredients.

A regular Rice Krispy Bar recipe: (I halved this and used sugar free, protein packed products)
3 T butter
10 oz., about 40 marshmallows  or 4 cups mini marshmallows
5-6 cups rice Krispy cereal

I personally don't like chocolate on them but my husband LOVES chocolate, so this pan was for him.  You can just make the bars like regular Rice Krispie Bars instead of covering in chocolate or a peanut butter chocolate topping if you don't wish to.

Sugar Free, Low Carb "Rice Krispie" style bars

1 pk. La Nouba: Sugar Free Marshmallow
1 1/2 - 2 cups unflavored protein crunchies
1-2 T Butter
1 t Vanilla
1-2 T Peanut Butter
1/2 package Hershey's Sugar Free Semi-Sweet Baking Chips
Sugar substitute of your choice (I used liquid drops)

Melting about 1-2 tablespoons of butter with 1-2 packages of sugar free marshmallows in the microwave for about a minute until they puff up to about quadruple their size then add a teaspoon of vanilla extract and about a teaspoon or two worth of sweetener of your choice.  Add about 2 cups whey protein crisps and mix like you do rice krispy bars.  Press into a greased 8X8" pan.  Because they don't taste exactly like the cereal bars, I opted to top them with melted chocolate/peanut butter.  Half a package of sugar free chocolate chips (about 5 oz.) with a heaping tablespoon of peanut butter and a teaspoon of butter, melted in the microwave.  You can also add a dash of vanilla and a little sweetener substitute if you wish (I did).  Spread over the bars and let set or chill.  Cut into squares.

I can't find these exact Body Crunch unflavored crispies anymore, but I'm thrilled I found a great replacement available on Amazon!  Link at the bottom of this post.

UPDATE:  I haven't been able to find these protein crisps for a couple years and my regular supplier discontinued them as well.  Today I was on Amazon looking for other products and stumbled across THESE, which look like the same thing, just under a different name and I'm SO EXCITED!!!!

If you can't find the Body360 original unflavored, try THESE instead!

Amazon sells a 6-pack of LaNouba Sugar Free Marshmallows that are an even better deal right now (as of this post) than my normal online supplier
