Kashi Cranberry Treats

These easy & quick treats are similar to Rice Crispy Treats. The Kashi GOLEAN Crunch cereal is a protein & high fiber cereal. The tartness of the cranberries and the sweetness of the treats is a nice combination. I used 6 mini spring form pans instead of the 9x13" pan. One was a mini heart shape with sprinkles as a surprise for Hannahlily. These make a nice gift in a cello bag with a pretty ribbon.
3 T. butter
1 (10.5 oz.) bag miniature marshmallows
1 (15 oz.) box Kashi GOLEAN Crunch! cereal
1 1/4 c. dried cranberries, divided
Vegetable cooking spray
1- Melt butter in large pot over low heat. Add marshmallows and cook stirring constantly until melted & smooth. Remove from heat.
2- Stir in cereal & 1 c. dried cranberries until well coated.
3- Press mixture into 13x9" pan coated with baking spray. Chop remaining 1/4 c. dried cranberries and sprinkle on top. Cut into bars when firm.

oh no! I bought the wrong cereal. At the store, I thought, "Was it GOLEAN or GOLEAN crunch?" I got the plain old GOLEAN. I'm going to make it anyway because I have a huge supply of dried cranberries and I love these kinds of things! Thanks for posting!!

Hi Rebecca, So sorry I didn't see your comment until just now. I used the Go Lean Crunch but I think any whole grain cereal would be good. Have you made it? If you have, how did you like it? We really liked the recipe. It would be nice to take on trips too. Thank you so much for commenting!!
