Pumpkin spice, meet pumpkin rice. Rice Krispies, that is.
Crackling with crispy (yet chewy) texture and packed with pumpkin flavor, this autumnal twist on an old school favorite is exactly what the gut doctor ordered. Because not only are these treats downright delectable, they’re also loaded with gut-healing prebiotic fiber when you sprinkle in some of our unflavored, unsweetened Supergut Fiber Mix.
With the power of prebiotic resistant starch, your baked goods can go from sinful to superfood with ease. They taste great. But more importantly, they’ll keep you feeling full, your blood sugar stable, and your gut microbes firing on all cylinders. In short, these Pumpkin Rice Krispies are anything but basic.
They’ll have you saying, “Good GOURD, these are good!” in no time.
- 6 cups — Rice Krispies cereal
- 2 servings — Supergut Fiber Mix
- 4 Tbsp — Salted butter
- 1 tsp — Pumpkin pie spice
- To desired color — Orange gel food coloring
- 3 (ends broken off into 2-inch pieces for a total of 6 pieces) — Pretzel rods
- 6 — Mini airheads, green
- Makes — 6 Rice Krispie treats
- Measure out Rice Krispies cereal and pour into a bowl. Melt butter in a very large pot over medium-low heat.
- Once melted, add the marshmallows, pumpkin pie spice and fiber mix, and as the marshmallows begin to melt, begin adding the gel food coloring until desired color is achieved.
- Stir constantly until the marshmallows are completely melted and the pumpkin spice and fiber mix is combined.
- Remove from heat and immediately pour in Rice Krispies cereal. Gently stir and fold until cereal is evenly coated.
- Allow mixture to cool slightly until it is cool enough to handle with your hands.
- Measure out a handful of mixture, then mold the mixture into a pumpkin-shaped ball. If the mixture is too sticky, rub a bit of butter on your hands or spray with nonstick cooking spray.
- Create an indentation on the top of the pumpkin and press 1 piece of the pretzel rod into the top center.
- Use a knife to cut out the shape of a leaf and a vine from a green airhead. Press the airhead leaf and vine around the pretzel rod on top of the pumpkin.
