Brown Rice Crispy Treats

Winner of the “Most Likely to Repeat” award. A grown-up fresh and healthy spin on the traditional “Rice Krispy Treat” packed with energy boosting nutrients!


  • 2-3 T. virgin coconut oil
  • 1 c. brown rice syrup
  • 3/4 c. almond butter or unsalted peanut butter
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 6 c. Brown Rice Crispy Cereal

Optional Additions:

  • 1/4 c. sesame seeds
  • 1/2 c. pumpkin or sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 c. chopped nuts (cashew, almond, walnut)
  • 1/2 – 3/4 c. raisins or dried cranberries

Optional Topping:

  • Organic dark chocolate



  1. Put coconut oil into a medium-sized saucepan and heat over medium heat. Add brown rice syrup and nut butter.
  2. Heat until tiny bubbles form, stirring constantly with a wire whisk.
  3. Immediately take the pot off the heat and add the vanilla. Stir it again.
  4. Place brown rice crispy cereal into a large bowl and add any of the optional additions.
  5. Pour the hot rice syrup mixture over it. Immediately mix together with a wooden spoon.
  6. Pour mixture into a 9 x 13-inch pan and press mixture flat. You may need to place a little coconut oil or water on your hands so the mixture won’t stick to them.
  7. If adding the chocolate topping, then take desired amount of dark chocolate and place into a heavy-bottomed saucepan over very low heat.
  8. Heat until completely melted, stirring occasionally. Pour over top of crispy treats, spreading evenly with the back of a spoon.
  9. Cool completely before slicing into bars.
