Brown rice crispy treats

Last week we made a great healthy version of the old marshmallow rice krispy treats recipe you might have eaten as  a child. (Think kelloggs).  Our version is high in protein, has no high fructose corn syrup, is marshmallow free and vegan!! 
What more could you ask for??
oh yes, it was delicious!
Here is the recipe.

Brown Rice syrup and nut butter rice Crispy Treats


2/3 cup of almond butter or cashew butter or peanut butter

2/3 cup of brown rice syrup

6 cups of brown rice crispy cereal or puffed rice cereal

2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

( Chocolate chips or dried fruit 1/2 cup or more)
**(I used dried blueberries and shredded coconut)


Put your nut butter, rice syrup, and vanilla into a small sauce pan and heat over a low heat until the mixture becomes warm and syrup like.  ( a few minutes)

While your nut butter  and syrup are heating, spray a large bowl with a little cooking spray before adding the rice cereal.  Pour the nut butter syrup over the cereal and combine until all of the rice crispies are evenly coated .  (You can use a spatula or even your hands) 
*If you are adding dries berries or fruit, add them now.  If you are adding chocolate chips, wait until the combined rice and syrup mixture has cooled a bit so that the chips do not melt.

Transfer the mixture into a baking dish (like a Pyrex) that has been lightly coated with non-stick cooking spray or use parchment paper on a cookie sheet/tray (which is what i used).  Pat them down tightly on all sides including the top and form into a rectangle.  Cut into squares once they have cooled.
YUMMMMM!  Even better than the ol' marshmallow recipe and so good for you!.

**We added with a spatula some of that melted brown rice syrup and nut butter mixture over the top of the cooled rectangle and sprinkled shredded coconut over the top and it was fabulous!!!
