The Doctors TV Show brought Alicia Silverstone, actress and author of The Kind Diet: A Simple Guide to Feeling Great, Losing Weight, and Saving the Planet, on their show to talk about her Vegan Diet that has made her healthy and feel great. One of the recipes that Silverstone brought on The Drs TV Show was her healthy version of a Rice Krispie Treat. She took the classic Rice Krispie Treat and turned it on its head by using brown rice crisp cereal instead of regular white rice, and brown rice syrup as the sweetener rather than marshmallow.  And guess what holds together the treats?  Peanut butter of course!
