Really easy kamut rice crispy treat recipe

I’ve made this dessert a few times and streamlined it so it’s as quick as possible and I can whip up a batch in literally 5 minutes while wearing Jack! I originally made it to use up a bunch of puffed kamut (an ancient grain similar to puffed rice) that I bought for Jack but he didn’t really like. I made it on the stove the first time, but then the next time I used the microwave and it worked just as well, but was faster and easier to clean up.

You’ll need (everything is approximate- this is hard to mess up!)

  • half a bag of puffed kamut or rice (3 ounces). I got it in the cereal section of whole foods
  • an entire bag of any kind of marshmallow (3.5 cups)
  • about 1/4 cup butter or vegan butter type substance

Directions:

  • I like to first take a glass container (about 9×9) and spread some butter to grease it, or use some coconut oil
  • Throw in the bag of marshmallows and the butter
  • Microwave for 30 seconds
  • Mix the stuff a little
  • Microwave another 30 seconds
  • Mix everything fairly well, then add the kamut/rice and mix so the kamut is coated
  • Smoosh the mixture into the pan a little with the back of your spoon
  • Let it cool to solidify before serving

If you eat it out of the dish you only have to clean 1 dish at the end! So low maintenance :) This is obviously not healthy with all the sugar, but at least you can use a whole grain like kamut and there are no trans fats or weird ingredients you’d find in store bought cookies.

I bet this would be good with other things added as well like chocolate chips, m&m type candies, or peanut butter chips
