Chocolate Protein Rice Crispy Treats

There’s nothing wrong with enjoying a little chocolate now and then, right? Right. Especially when it’s added to these other healthier ingredients to make a chocolate lover’s dream. These brown rice crispy treats have all the amazing taste and all the beloved stickiness as the original rice crispy treats. But they’re high in protein, and won’t leave you with a feeling of guilt.

  • Duration
  • Prep Time

Ingredients

  • 3 cups brown rice crispy cereal

  • 1/2 cup Sunwarrior Classic Vanilla Protein

  • 1/2 cup nut butter of choice

  • 1/2 cup brown rice syrup

  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    1 tablespoon coconut oil

    1/4 cup chocolate chips

Preparation

1. In a large bowl, mix your rice crispy cereal with your vanilla protein powder and set aside.

2. In a small saucepan on the stove, melt your nut butter, brown rice syrup, salt, vanilla and coconut oil (it should probably take around 3 minutes). Then take that delicious mixture and dump it over the rice crispies and mix WELL!

3. Once everything is well incorporated (no protein powder dust left at the bottom), you can add in your chocolate chips, give it another great mix and press your crispy treats into a square pan lined with parchment paper.

4. Pop this pan into your freezer and let it chill for 10 minutes, then remove from freezer and slice your treats into squares. Put it back in the freezer for 10 more minutes and then you are ready to indulge!
