How to make rice crispy treats lower in calories

I was excited about trying to make some rice crispy treats with some sugar free marshmallows I found at the grocery store! I was just curious if it would work at all.

I would even call these sugar free rice crispy treats, except I didn’t realize the rice crispies did have a tiny bit of sugar in it.

With a typical rice crispy treats recipe, you’ll use:

  • Butter
  • marshmallows
  • and rice crispies

Making them the classic way results in rice crispy treats that are 99 calories and 20 grams of carbs (with 11 grams of sugar!)

The substitutions for lower sugar, lower calorie crispy treats make them HALF the calories at 50 calories per bar, 11 grams of carbs, and only 1 gram of sugar! That’s a huge savings!

The substitutions were:

  • Light butter
  • and Sugar free marshmallows
