These Peanut Butter Rice Crispy treats are without a doubt, my favorite dessert recipe for kids.
This recipe by Alicia Silverstone is not only delicious, but also healthy and easy to make. I love dishes that have 5 ingredients or less!
1 box brown rice crisps cereal
1 3/4 cups brown rice syrup
Fine sea salt
3/4 cup peanut butter or almond butter (preferably unsweetened and unsalted)
1/2 cup grain-sweetened, nondairy chocolate or carob chips
Pour rice cereal into a large bowl. Heat the syrup with a pinch of salt in a saucepan over low heat. When the rice syrup liquefies, add the peanut
butter and stir until well combined. Pour over the rice cereal. Mix well with a wooden spoon.
Once thoroughly mixed and cooled to room temperature, stir in the chocolate chips. Make sure the mixture is cool, or you will end up with melted
chocolate instead of chocolate chips in your treats.
Turn the mixture out into an 8×8 or 9×13 baking dish. Wet your wooden spoon lightly and press the mixture evenly into the pan. Let cool for 1 hour
before cutting into squares or bars.
