Brown Rice "Crispy" Peanut Butter Squares

This is a delightful replacement to the very bland rice crispy squares using marshmallows to hold it together. You know, a nice change. Be careful though, this recipe is even MORE of a sticky mess than the traditional recipe. A plus side to this dessert/snack is the brown rice syrup. Grain syrups do not mess up the blood glucose levels since its digested further down the intestinal tract than other types of sugar, according to my cooking teacher. I could be wrong. Please feel free to say so.

So on with the recipe.

125 ml peanut or almond butter
125 ml chopped nuts
2 ml vanilla
2 ml cinnamon
180 ml of brown rice syrup
4 cups of puffed brown rice cereal

Mix all the ingredients except for the cereal in a large bowl. Add in the cereal and mix with wet hands until well coated. Press the mixture in a well oiled pan and place in the fridge to harden.

They freeze well.
