Marshmallow Crispy Treats

We have a favorite dessert in our house--these marshmallow crispy treats!

They are not ordinary either, as they have a secret ingredient in them--flaxseed. Flaxseed can be added to all sorts of recipes, but I never thought about this one. I found the recipe in Jessica Seinfeld's cookbook, Deceptively Delicious. All of the recipes have secret ingredients in them, mainly pureed vegetables. Everything we have tried has been awesome! Pureeing food hasn't been that difficult, but if you have some extra jars of baby food, they can be used as well (Little S grew out of them really fast, so I still have some jars I'm trying to use up when I can.).

So, enjoy this sweet treat this weekend with a tall glass of milk (you'll probably want to get a second one when you're done, but that's okay--they're "healthified"!).

Marshmallow Crispy Treats

Nonstick cooking spray
1 tablespoon trans-fat-free soft tub margarine spread
1 (10-ounce) package marshmallows
6 cups crisp brown rice cereal
1/4 cup flaxseed meal

Coat an 8x8-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Melt the margarine in a large pot over low heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove the pan from the heat. Add the rice cereal and flaxseed, and stir until the rice is well coated with marshmallow. Press the mixture into the baking dish and let cool before cutting into squares.

Makes 8 large squares.
