Rice Krispy / Cheerios Treats w/o Butter?

Hey Gang!

Does anyone have a good alternative for butter in Rice Krispy / Cheerio Treats? I still want to use marshmallows, but want to cut out the butter, but also don't want to burn the melting marshmallows or make the finished product hard as a hockey puck. All the non-butter recipes I've found online also seem to completely omit the marshmallows (opting for honey and peanut butter as the cereal binder/chewy-fier). Anyone have a happy medium that has worked for them?

Thanks!
