Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Treats

I grew up making rice krispie treats with my mom so I knew I wanted to create a vegan recipe that had a little twist to it. Of course you can easily swap the butter & marshmallows for vegan ones but I wanted something I little more decadent. So of course I had to make these with chocolate and peanut butter, two of my favorite things!

Ingredient Notes

Peanut butter – You can easily swap this out for any other nut butter.

Brown rice crisps – I like to use brown rice crisps to add some additional fiber and protein to these bars. I buy Barbara’s organic brown rice crisps cereal that I find at my local grocery store.

Shredded coconut – I love using shredded coconut to give these bars different tastes and textures.

Sliced almonds – I typically buy these sliced but you can also buy whole almonds and slice them yourself.

Cacao powder – If you’re not a chocolate lover, you can skip the cacao powder and these bars will still be just as delicious!

Storing Instructions

To keep these bars fresh, I recommend storing them in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 5 days. You can also freeze them for 2-3 months.
