I finally used up my box of cereal!! And these treats are really yummy. Instead of butter or margarine, I used virgin coconut oil. (YUM.) It is really tasty in baked goods too! I know, it is very high in saturated fat, but the it's the kind of saturated fat that is more easily burned off. Plus it has many other health benefits.
