These Peanut Butter Rice Krispies treats are only 3 ingredients and one of the fastest, and tastiest versions of this recipe.

I've always loved Rice Krispie treats, in any flavor combo. There is something about them that is fun, tasty, and easy. They are perfect for busy moms and kids, alike.
This peanut butter version is my fave. I feel like adding the peanut butter without the butter pumps up the nutrition, a bit. And when I'm really feeling ambitious, I"ll add chocolate chips and a chocolate frosting. <--- that is the ultimate combo! Of course, that combo does little for the nutrition factor :). But sooooo good!
