Servings 36 pieces
Calories 78 kcal

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup natural smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3 cups puffed rice cereal without salt and sugar added
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped roasted almonds
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds

Instructions

  1. In a small pot, combine peanut butter and honey and heat on medium-low heat for about 3 minutes or until warmed through and spreadable.
  2. Meanwhile, combine puffed rice, chopped almonds and chia seeds in a large bowl.
  3. Pour PB/honey mixture over rice mixture and mix thoroughly.
  4. Line a 11 x 7 inch pan (often called a biscuit/brownie pan) with parchment paper (I spray some olive oil at the bottom to help the paper stick to the pan) and press the mixture firmly into it (I use the back of a cup to make sure I press as hard as I can!).
  5. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until set. Lift it out of the pan and cut into 36 pieces using a sharp knife (I cut the preparation into 3 long strips and then each of these long pieces into 12 small pieces). Store in the fridge in an airtight container.

  1. The more peanut butter in my life, the better! I love that these are no bake and so easy to whip up on a Sunday night! That way, I will have a healthy snack to take to the office on Monday!

  2. Can I eliminate the honey? I often find these sorts of things too sweet, but I’m wondering if the bars will still hold together without it.
