Dr. Oz’s Puffed Brown Rice Treat

Added to Recipes on Fri 09/16/2011

Ingredients

7 cups puffed brown rice

1 1/2 cups crunchy organic peanut butter (no sugar or salt)

2/3 cup agave nectar

1 1/2 tbsp pure vanilla extract  

 

Directions

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.
