These are yummy, the ingredients are simple, and there is no baking required. Need I say more? Super tasty dessert that we all loved!
Recipe is from the blog The Big Man's World:
- 3 to 3 1/2 cups crispy rice cereal <I used "One Degree" Brown Rice Crisps>
- 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
- 1 cup peanut butter can substitute for sunflower seed or soy nut butter <I used 1/2 cup almond butter and 1/2 cup peanut butter>
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup coconut oil can sub for grass fed butter
Line an 8 x 8-inch baking dish or deep baking tray of choice with parchment paper and set aside.
Add crispy rice cereal into a large mixing bowl and set aside. In a microwave safe bowl or stovetop, combine all your other ingredients and heat until melted. Remove from microwave/off stove and whisk until completely incorporated.
Pour the chocolate/peanut butter mixture over the crispy rice cereal and mix until combined. Pour into the lined baking dish <I use a piece of parchment paper over the top of the mixture to REALLY push the bars down so they are compact and even> and refrigerate until firm (at least an hour). Remove and cut into bars.
