Add a healthy snack to your kids’ lunch boxes with these simple and tasty puffed brown rice treats. A generic box of puffed brown rice is only about $1.50, making this an affordable and delicious way to satisfy your family's sweet tooth.
- 7 cups puffed brown rice
- 1 1/2 cups organic peanut butter
- 2/3 cup agave nectar
- 1 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
Prepare a 9 x 9 pan by criss-crossing wax paper with a 5 inch overlap on each side.
Pour the puffed rice into a large bowl, set aside. Melt the peanut butter and agave nectar over low heat (or microwave 1-2 minutes) until liquid. Stir together well then add the vanilla extract. Continue stirring until all ingredients are well incorporated.
Combine the peanut butter mixture with the puffed rice and mix well (until the rice is well coated). Pour into the prepared pan. Fold over the wax paper overhang and press down hard to firm up the treats.
Refrigerate treats for a few hours before cutting into squares.
