Crispy Treats


  • 3/4 cup natural creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup (or xylitol or sulkin fiber syrup if keeping carbs low)
  • 2 tablespoons virgin coconut oil
  • Optional: Sugar-free marshmallows (I used 2/3 a package of this kind)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt (if your peanut butter isn’t already salted)
  • 2 1/2-3 cups crispy brown rice cereal (or cocoa krispies)

For the chocolate topping:


  1. Line an 8×8-inch pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a pot, melt peanut butter, coconut oil, maple syrup (or sweetener of choice), and vanilla. Stir in protein powder (optional) and cereal. Press the mixture into the pan.
  3. Microwave chocolate (or melt in a saucepan) and pour over the base. Chill for 30 minutes, then cut and enjoy! (Store in the fridge, take out 5 minutes before serving).
