No-Bake Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Bars

I came up with this recipe because I was trying to copycat the EnviroKidz Peanut Choco Drizzle granola bars. Those are my son’s favorite bars, but I got tired for paying $4 for a box of 6 granola bars! – Especially now that school has started and he wants to take a bar to school everyday for a snack.

The problem I ran into was getting the bars firm enough, especially firm enough to withstand a lunch box. By the time he got to school his poor little snack seemed more like just plain granola than a granola bar. But I just kept tweaking the measurements until I got it right.

I love this recipe because I can throw it together in less than 15 minutes and have a perfect snack for school all week. Enjoy!

No-Bake Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Bars
 
Ingredients
  • 5 C gluten free Rice Krispy's
  • ¼ C brown sugar or palm sugar
  • ½ C agave nectar or honey
  • ½ C creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • ⅓ C dairy free chocolate chips, frozen to help prevent melting
Instructions
  1. Spray a 7 x 11 in or 8 x 8 in (will result in a thick bar) pan with gfcf cooking cooking oil.
  2. In a large saucepan, heat the sugar and agave nectar until just a boil.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in the peanut butter and vanilla.
  4. Pour in the Rice Krispies and mix well. Then stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. With slightly wet hands, press into greased baking dish.
  6. Place uncovered in refrigerator until firm, a few hours to overnight. Slice into bars. *For easier slicing, remove from refrigerator after 1 hour, score bars, then place back into fridge until firm.
For a 7 x 11 in pan:
  1. First cut in ¼ of the way lengthwise
  2. Then cut the bars in ½ right down the width of the dish... then cut each ½ into thirds. (this would be the lower half if you're looking at the picture below). Makes 8 bars

  1. These were so good!

  2. Yum!!! I just made these this afternoon. Unfortunately our store was sold out of Enjoy Life chocolate chips (nooooooooo!) so I had to make these without. I also subbed almond butter for the peanut butter since my kids aren’t big on peanut butter. Despite the lack of chocolate chips and the substitution of almond butter, these were very tasty. I will be making these again and trying them WITH the chocolate chips as well. Thanks so much for a terrific recipe.

    These were fantastic! and with the recent study of high levels of arsenic found in brown rice syrup they create a perfect alternative. Thank you for the recipe

    I’m so glad you liked these rice krispie bars! I hadn’t heard about the arsenic in brown rice syrup, just apple juice, that’s good to know!

    Thank you,
