Brown Rice Treats

I had intended to move on to some summer meal ideas this week, but I keep thinking of snack ideas I cannot resist sharing! Here is one that is a more natural alternative to Rice Krispie Treats.

Brown Rice Snacks


1/2 cup natural peanut butter

1/2 cup honey

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon cinammon

2 cups brown rice cereal


1. Add the peanut butter, honey, vanilla, and cinnamon to a large bowl and mix well. The amounts listed above are flexible. I reduced the honey and increased the peanut butter. I thought they were too cinnamon-y, so next time I”ll reduce that as well.

2. Add the cereal and slowly mix until all the cereal is well-coated.

3. Roll into walnut-sized balls and place on a greased or wax paper lined pan.

After I had rolled about half the mixture, I added a little Ricemellow Creme to what as left. It added a little more stickiness and sweetness. I definitely wouldn’t add it without reducing the honey, as I did in the first step.

Really play around with these- roll the balls in crushed nuts or coconut. You could also add flax, nuts, or coconut right to the cereal mixture. Enjoy!
