Crispy Brown Rice Treats

Makes 8 2- x 4-inch bars

Chunks of nuts and cranberries give these rice bars a novel twist, and they won’t send you into sugar shock.
  • 3 cups crispy brown rice cereal
  • 1 cup roasted, salted whole almonds
  • ⅓ cup dried cranberries
  • ⅓ cup chunky-style unsalted almond butter
  • 5 Tbs. brown rice syrup

1. Coat 8-inch square pan with cooking spray.

2. Stir together cereal, almonds, and cranberries in large bowl.

3. Microwave almond butter and brown rice syrup in microwave-safe bowl 30 seconds. Stir until blended. Pour over cereal mixture, and stir until coated. Press firmly into prepared pan with wet hands. Cover with plastic wrap, and chill 1 hour.

4. Run knife around edge of pan, and invert onto cutting board. Cut into 8 2- x 4-inch bars. Wrap each bar in plastic wrap or parchment (to prevent sticking), and store in airtight container.
