Peanut butter rice crispy treats with chocolate chips!!!
Another winning dessert from Alicia Silverstones "The Kind Life". Imagine rice crispy treats with peanut butter minus the questionable marshmallows. This is an amazing treat that I can only make once in a while-otherwise we can't control ourselves around here!
1 box brown rice crisps cereal (or rice puffs)
1 1/2 cups brown rice syrup (or honey, or agave, or whatever liquid sweetener you desire)
fine sea salt
3/4 cup almond butter (again, feel free to substitute any nut butter you like, we use a combo of almond, pecan, cashew & peanut because we can't decide!)
1/2 cup nondairy chocolate chips
Pour rice cereal into a big bowl. Heat syrup and nut butters together with a pinch of sea salt. When the syrup & nut butter liquifies pour over the rice cereal and mix well with a spoon. Once the mixture has cooled a bit add the chocolate chips (which aren't totally necessary, but add alot of pizzaz!) and stir. Then you push press the mixture into a 9 inch by 13 inch baking dish and wait for it to be ready-which it is right away, gotta love that instant gratification!
