Chocolate Rice Crispy Treats

I recently bought a package of Nature’s Path Peanut Choco Gluten Free Bars, thinking that they would be delicious and satisfy my sweet tooth. Much to my dismay, they had a very strange taste, so I set out to make my own version. This version is much healthier and tastier if I do say so myself! Their is no added salt or sugar like the processed, packaged ones. The chia seeds and flax give them extra fiber that will also help keep you fuller, longer. Give this easy recipe a try and let me know what you think!


  • 3/4 cup organic peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 4 cups brown rice crisp cereal
  • 2 tbs chia seeds
  • 2 tbs flax meal

Chocolate sauce ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup dairy free chocolate chunks
  • 2 tbs coconut oil


Line a 8×13 glass pan with parchment paper. Combine the cereal, chia seeds, and flax in a bowl. Heat up the peanut butter, coconut oil, and maple syrup over low heat in a small saucepan. Once melted, stir in with the cereal mixture. Spread in the glass pan. Heat up the chocolate chunks and coconut oil over low heat, continuously stirring until melted. Drizzle the chocolate over the crispy treats and place in the freezer. Cut them into bars and enjoy!
