Healthy Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Treats

For some reason this recipe makes me want to turn on Brittany’s Hit Me Baby One More Time. I guess peanut butter put me in a really good mood, just like 90’s music.

This poor recipe has been sitting in my drafts box for like 3 weeks now. I keep pushing it off and that is not okay! Delicious peanut butter and chocolate in the same recipe does not deserve to be shunned of the publish button.

I absolutely love the coconut oil in this recipe. It makes everything so creamy and give it a great taste as well! 

I’ve tried to make this recipe before using puffed brown rice, but brown rice crisps is definitely the secret. I picked up a box of organic brown rice crisps from Whole Foods.

Feel free to add in any other nummy add-ins, such as chocolate chips, dried fruit, coconut chunks, or chia seeds. The more the merrier, right?

I drizzled dark chocolate on top because I think it looks pretty…and let’s face it, it tastes real good.
