Chocolate Crispy Rice Squares

Chocolate Crispy Rice Squares

  • Author: Meghan Telpner


  • 4 cups crispy brown rice cereal, puffed quinoa, puffed amaranth or other dry cereal of choice
  • 1/3 cup chopped nuts/seeds (I used part almonds and part pumpkin seeds, lightly toasted)
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 3 Tbs coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 Tbs maple syrup (optional)
  • 1/3 cup bitter-sweet dairy free dark chocolate (optional- though without- use an additional 1/4 cup almond butter)
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs (optional)
  • 3 Tbs ground flax
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • pinch of sea salt


You could also add in coconut flakes, goji berries, golden berries or other dried fruit of choice

  • In a large pot on medium heat, melt together the almond butter, honey, coconut oil, vanilla extract, maple syrup, chocolate, cinnamon and sea salt.
  • Once melted together, stir in the cereal, nuts, flax and optional dried fruit. Stir until thoroughly mixed
  • Lightly oil a glass dish with coconut oil and spread mixture out evenly
  • Press down with the back of a spatula until firmly pressed together
  • Refrigerate for 30-40 minutes until hardened and then cut into squares.
