I don’t have a big story to share behind this recipe, only that after dinner the other, as I was watching Downton Abbey (we’ll discuss how amazing this show is in a second), and I really wanted peanut butter cookies. Like really, really badly. But I’ve come to discover that living in an NYC apartment has it’s downsides. I have a mini oven. Mini enough that none, not a single one of my cookie sheets fits inside. So until I purchase new ones – I’m leaning towards these – my cookie cravings will need to be satisfied by something else.
I wracked my brain with ideas, but the longer and longer I contemplated, the later and later it got (and the more and more sucked into Downtown Abbey I became). I got to the point that I just didn’t feel like baking anymore. But I needed my sweet, peanut butter fix. So I settled for this. A healthy version of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, in rice crispy fashion.
They’re my Healthy “Reese’s” Quinoa Crispy Treats.
