Improv Challenge: Banana Biscoff Rice Krispie Treats

This recipe was created for the January Improv Challenge, hosted by Kristen at Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker. Please see her lovely blog here.  The required ingredients for this challenge are bananas and nutmeg.

My recipe for Banana Biscoff Rice Krispie Treats, was inspired by this recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Rice Krispie Treats at

These Rice Krispie Treats are delicious, and different from any other Rice Krispie recipe I've ever tried. The flavors of the banana and nutmeg really come through. These treats are wetter and gooey-er than traditional Rice Krispie Treats. Enjoy!

Banana Biscoff Rice Krispie Treats 

6 cups of Rice Krispies
5 cups mini marshmallows
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 banana (2.5 oz, approximately ½ of 1 large size one,) mashed
1/2 cup Biscoff Spread
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 cup mini marshmallows
1 tablespoon butter
banana (2.5 oz, approximately ½ of 1 large size one,) mashed
2 tablespoons creamy Biscoff Spread
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Base: Place marshmallows and butter in a non-stick pan, and melt over low heat. Stir to combine. Add  Biscoff spread; stir until melted. Add banana and nutmeg; stir. Quickly add Rice Krispies, and stir to combine. Press mixture into a greased 11 x 13 pan. Set aside.

To make topping: Place marshmallows and butter in a non-stick pan, and melt over low heat. Stir to combine. Add banana and nutmeg; stir. Pour topping over Rice Krispie mixture. Melt Biscoff spread in the microwave in 10 second intervals. With a spoon, drizzle Biscoff spread over topping. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or the topping to set.

This recipe makes 16 servings. Each square is 5 Weight Watchers Points Plus.

Brilliant idea Kira to add Biscoff and bananas and nutmeg to everyday Rice Krispie treats. Love your elegant drizzle, too.

Looking forward to more of your posts as I participate in this very fun monthly improv challenge.

I have never heard of Biscoff. What is it?

Sarah Tackett said...

A cup of coffee would go great with these. I'm currently hosting a giveaway to win a $20 Starbucks gift card and would love for you to enter!

Biscoff spread is a peanut butter alternative(not nearly as healthy as peanut butter, though!)

It's the same exact consistency as creamy peanut butter, but it's made out of Biscoff brand cookies.

The ingredients are Biscoff cookies, canola oil, sugar, an emulsifier and citric acid.

All Natural & Vegan! Product of Belgium.

I bought mine at a store called Fresh and Easy, but if you have a Trader Joes nearby, they carry there own brand of cookie butter as well.
