Yummy Treats

These wonderfully delicious treats came to me via Alicia Silverstone in her book “the kind diet”
This is a really good book by the way. Very thought provoking and some really interesting and delicious recipes. Try this recipe…you’ll see what I mean!
Crispy Peanut Butter Treats with Chocolate Chips
Makes 9 to 12 squares
1 box brown rice crisps cereal (I found a really good organic brand at my health food store)
1 3/4 cups brown rice syrup
Fine sea salt
3/4 cup peanut butter or almond butter
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips or carob chips (you can skip if you want, I did and they where still good)
Pour the 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 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 a 8″X8″ or 9″x13″ 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.
ENJOY!
