Description

The best vegan and gluten free chocolate peanut butter rice crispy treats!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 cups brown rice crispy cereal (NOT puffed rice!)
  • 1/3 cup roughly chopped chocolate (or sub chocolate chips)
  • 1/4 cup sprinkles (totally optional!)
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter¬†
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Instructions

  1. Line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper (it helps to lightly grease the pan to get the parchment to stick).
  2. In a large bow, mix together the rice cereal, chopped chocolate, and sprinkles (if using).
  3. On the stove top in a small pot, gently heat the peanut butter, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla, and sea salt until everything is smooth and well combined. Do not overheat- it should only take 1-2 minutes.
  4. Pour peanut butter mixture over the rice cereal mixture and gently stir to get everything well coated.
  5. Add mixture to the parchment-lined baking dish. Use the bottom of a jar or glass to press the mixture evenly into the baking dish until flat. Chill in refrigerator for 40 minutes before slicing.
