  • 4 cups brown rice crisp cereal
  • 1 cup natural almond butter or peanut butter
  • 1 cup brown rice syrup

Chocolate Layer

  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips I used Lily's
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil


  • Line a 9x9 or 8x8 square baking dish with parchment paper or grease with cooking spray.
  • Measure rice cereal and place in a large bowl.
  • Place brown rice syrup and almond butter in a saucepan over low heat. Heat while stirring until mixture is combined and creamy, about 3 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and pour brown rice syrup mixture over the rice cereal and stir until all cereal pieces are well coated.
  • Transfer rice cereal mixture to the prepared baking dish and press down firmly with your hands.
  • Add chocolate chips and coconut oil into a microwave-safe bowl and heat in the microwave using 30 second increments, stirring every 30 seconds, until chips are melted. It should only take 1-2 minutes. Once melted, add chocolate on top of rice krispie treats and spread so it creates an even layer.
  • Let cool in the fridge for 1 hour before cutting into squares and serving.
  • Store leftover treats in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.


  • The chocolate layer is optional, but totally delicious.
