Rice Krispie Cupcakes

These are quick and easy for children to make themselves and would be a lovely treat for your child’s lunchbox. Oats and dried fruits provide a good source of energy to keep you going through the afternoon. If you are worried about the nuts, you can leave these out.

    These cakes will be no good for lunchboxes as they contain nuts and children aren’t allowed to take nuts to school/clubs.

  • I did leave the golden syrup out when I made these and r�placed it with a little milk. They turn out good and my kids (8 and 4) love them. I must admit that I do too plus they seem to be helping my energy levels (I took one with me at work and feel more energetic than I usually feel this time a day). I do recommend them.

  • These are far too sweet so I wouldn’t make them again without reducing the syrup, perhaps. My daughter has a very sweet tooth so loves them, naturally, but nobody else can eat a whole one!

    I’d be interested to know if anybody else found the same problem/has successfully adapted the recipe because the concept of these cupcakes is fantastic!
