Brown Rice Crispy Treats

Servings:  16

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup almond butter
  • 2/3 cup brown rice syrup
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 3 cups crispy brown rice cereal
  • ½ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 T flaxseed
  • 3 T dried cranberries
  • 3 T raisins
  • 2 T dark chocolate chips, 60% cocoa or more

Directions

In a large bowl, mix together the crispy brown rice cereal and rolled oats.  Set aside.  In a large pan, stir together the peanut butter, almond butter, and brown rice syrup over a low heat until the mixture is warm (not hot!) and thoroughly combined.  It should take about 3 minutes.  Add vanilla extract.  Add the warm syrup mixture to the crispy rice cereal.  Stir well until the rice crispies are evenly coated with the syrup mixture.  Add in the flaxseed, cranberries, raisins, and dark chocolate chips.  It is probably easier to use your hands to incorporate everything.  Make sure the mixture is not too hot before adding the chocolate chips, or the chocolate will melt.  Grease and 8x8" pan and add the treats to the pan, pressing down evenly.  Cool for a few minutes and then cut into 16 squares.

Tips

The Whole Foods brand (365 Organics) is especially good in this recipe because the cereal is made from a short grain brown rice that seems to be rounder and plumper than a traditional long grain.  They hold their shape well and stay crispy.
