When I was young, Rice Krispy bars were one of my favorite desserts to pack for lunch. I love how crunchy and sweet they are, and I was craving an adult version of them. Rice Krispy bars aren’t the most nutritious, so I wanted to make a healthier alternative. That’s what inspired me to make these delicious vegan and gluten free peanut butter chocolate crunch bars.

What you need to make these peanut butter chocolate crunch bars

  • peanut butter (I like to use the natural one without added oils and sugar. It is cleaner in ingredients and binds easier with the rice cereal)
  • maple syrup (you can also use honey if you prefer)
  • rice cereal- rice cereal can be found in the cereal section of most grocery stores. I bought mine at Whole Foods. Here is a link for the brand that I purchased.
  • dark chocolate
  • coconut oil
  • salt (normal table salt, and the flakey kind)
  • cinnamon
  • vanilla

How to make them

  • In a large bowl, combine the peanut butter and maple syrup.
  • Microwave them so they soften and combine easier with the rice cereal.
  • Add the salt, cinnamon, and vanilla.
  • Then add 3 cups of rice cereal to the mixture.
  • Combine well and transfer to a pan.
  • Set aside.
  • In a new bowl, break apart your chocolate and add the coconut oil.
  • Microwave until the chocolate melts.
  • Now spread the chocolate over the rice crispy bar.
  • Refrigerate the bars until the chocolate hardens.
  • Cut them up, sprinkle some flakey salt and enjoy.

I have also put together a little video that shows the process in steps.
