Total Time 55 mins
Servings 12 bars


  • 1/2 cup unsweetened, creamy peanut butter (almond butter or cashew butter work well, too)
  • 1/4-1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tsp non-alcoholic vanilla flavoring
  • Cinnamon to taste (optional)
  • 3 cups sprouted brown rice cereal 


  • In a small pot over medium-low heat, warm the peanut butter and maple syrup.
  • As the mixture gets warmer, stir the ingredients to combine. Remove from the heat and then add the vanilla and cinnamon, if using. Stir to combine.
  • In a large mixing bowl, pour the rice cereal and peanut butter mixture. Using a rubber spatula, stir to combine. 
  • In a loaf pan or an 8 x 8-inch baking dish lined with parchment paper, pour the mixture and gently press to form it.
  • Let it sit at room temperature for 45 minutes, then refrigerate for 30 minutes or freeze for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Cut into slices or squares and enjoy!
