Brown Rice Crispy Treats

I made these on a whim, my own personal recipe. Well, I've read a lot of different ones, like the one herehere, and here. I guess this is a combo of them all. I'm actually obsessed with brown rice syrup. I've always been a huge caramel fan, pronounced car-a-mel, for all you car-mel people! Seriously though, pronounce it however you like, and if you like caramel, you will love brown rice syrup. Your blood sugar will thank you for eating it too, cuz it won't spike like it does with the refined stuff. Upon biting into these I thought they weren't very sweet, but then I got used to it and it became a good thing. That way you could also eat these for breakfast and not feel like a sugar junky!
You need:
4 cups brown rice cereal
3/4 cups salted peanut butter
1/4 cup peanut oil
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup brown rice syrup
1 ts vanilla
9x9 brownie pan
  • Line a 9x9 brownie pan with saran wrap
  • Combine all ingredients except cereal in a large pot on medium heat
  • Use a whisk to stir occasionally 
  • When it comes to a bubble, continue stirring for another two minutes
  • Turn off heat and pour in the cereal
  • Incorporate all ingredients using a rubber spatula
  • Pour into saran wrap lined brownie pan
  • Press surface down with rubber spatula
  • Allow to cool for 1 hour before cutting into squares (Lift it out with the saran wrap and remove the saran wrap first, duh!)
  • Enjoy!


  1. i will be making these! i discovered brown rice syrup because of alicia, and i am so happy for that discovery! i must confess to enjoying spoonfuls of it, when i'm craving something sweet! you need to open your own bake shop! please keep the recipes coming! :) xo

  2. Thank you Nicole. Brown rice syrup is so worth the 6 dollars it costs here. I recently ate a fruit roll up of some kind that was left in my car. It was gelatin free but the sugar was so strong and synthetic! Can't believe I ate it. It just shows how good quality natural sugars are. Thank you for your continuous kind words and support.
