If you constantly have a sweet tooth like I do, but can’t afford to eat Reece’s Pieces Cups and mint chocolate chip ice cream every day, then take advantage of this healthy sweet treat option. Not only is this simple to make, but it is also inexpensive and yields a large batch. Give my healthy peanut butter rice crispy treats a try!
For this recipe you will need:
6 cups crispy brown rice cereal
1/2 cup natural/organic chunky-style peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
2/3 cup dried cranberries
2/3 cup dark chocolate chips
1/4 cup coconut flakes
Begin by combining the honey and peanut butter in a large pot over low heat until melted, 3-5 minutes. Turn off the heat. Add the brown rice cereal and dried cranberries to the mixture and stir to combine. Then, add the chocolate chips and coconut flakes and gently combine.
Press the rice crispy mixture into a 9 by 13 inch pan sprayed with cooking spray. Allow it to cool for an additional 10-15 minutes and then pop into the fridge for 30 minutes. Cut into 2 by 3-inch squares and serve.
This crunchy treat will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth!
