For my daughter's birthday I wanted to give her a special day filled with yummy treats, desserts and foods she loves. After-all what birthday party (especially a kid one) is complete without massive amounts of sugar, candy and sweet treats, right? It is something of a cultural thing really. When you go to a party or an event, all diets are "on-pause" or those days instantly become a "cheat day" (you know what I'm saying.) And if you knew me before my keto journey, you knew that a "dessert bar" was a very common, if not a standard thing, at our parties.
However this now sugar-free mama has a loud, convincing voice inside yelling, "There must to be a way to achieve this without bringing back the processed food crap we painstakingly worked so hard to get out of our house." If it was possible, I wanted to do it.
So thus began my journey to think up foods that I could do a keto remake of. I loved rice krispies as a child and love how now they are so artisan looking half dipped in chocolate and swirled with white chocolate or sprinkles. This seems like a good keto remake candidate.
Now that the market is slightly saturated with keto cereal companies that are basically using protein powders and alternative sweeteners, there are many options to choose form that are low carb and tasty. These cereals are crunchy and quite convincing, living up to my 80's childhood standards of cereal.
The Highkey brand recently launched a cereal line to add to their product repertoire. Their new "frosted" flavor is also in the shape of a rice krispie. Enter inspiration! It would be perfect and look like the real deal!
