High Fiber Marshmallow Treats

  IMG_3107

Sorry for being MIA yesterday.

It was an incredibly busy day!

Not only have I been super busy training my replacement at work (yes… you read that correctly), but it’s National Nutrition Month AND yesterday was National Registered Dietitian Day!!!

There were lots of festivities that I organized at work and these high fiber treats were part of it.

For our Nutrition table I contacted numerous vendors for donations.

I’m pretty sure we got close to a thousand sample of fiber one 🙂

Along with this sample, I created and printed out this recipe for people to make.

These bars include Fiber One cereal, marshmallows, dried fruit, and semi-sweet chocolate chips.

The best thing about these bars is they contain 12 grams of fiber each!

Ingredients:

  • 1 bag marshmallows
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 5 cups Fiber One Cereal
  • 1/2 cup dried fruit. I like to use either dates or dried cherries.
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds
  • 2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Directions:

Spray 13×9 pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Melt butter in a large saucepan at medium low heat.

Add marshmallows to melted butter.

Keep heat at medium low. Continuously stir marshmallows until completely melted. Be careful not to burn marshmallows.

Take marshmallows off heat. Add in cereal, dried fruit, and almonds. Gently fold in chocolate. Be careful not to over mix.

Spread in pan, allow to cool completely, then cut into 12 squares.

Enjoy!

As far as my job goes… today is my last day. I’m so excited about my new endeavor. I’m working on a post for tomorrow to explain it all.
Have a wonderful Thursday 🙂

    OMG Estela. I want these now! My hubby loves rice crispie treats so if I make these I think he’d be a happy camper!

    I’ve often thought about replacing rice crispies with a higher fiber cereal. Glad to know it works – these look delicious!
    Are you going to stay home with your beautiful daughter?

    These look really good yum! The only problem I can’t have high fiber cereal or the high fiber cereal bars (don’t remember the exact name)… they make my stomach bloat and I look like a prego lady… I think because they are not natural fibers and synthetic… non the less it looks yummy!

    I never thought I’d see the words “high fiber” next to “marshmallow.” Looks great and creative, as always!

    Are you planning to leave your job Estela?

    YUM!! I love rice crispy treats…I have been making a GF version and Keith can not keep his hands off them! I wish Fiber 1 was gluten-free!!

    Yum, these sound delicious! I’ve been looking for ways to include more fibre in my diet so the timing couldn’t be better too!

    Oh wow, these would be so amazing as a mid-afternoon snack. As in I want one right now. And I can totally justify it to myself since there’s so much fiber. Can’t wait to hear more about your new job. I’m curious, but I’m guessing it’s a great opportunity.

    Oooh they look tasty! I’d try making them without marshmallows somehow though.

    These look like an amazing snack. It looks really easy to make, I bet kids would love making this and love eating it even more!

    I like Fiber One, but hubby doesn’t so I’m always looking for ways to get it down him. Score! 🙂

  18. Lindsay @ The Ketchup Diaries said on March 11, 2010 at 7:46 pm

    I make things similar than this with peanut butter, but never thought of adding in dried fruit for extra nutrition. Good thinking, Estela!
