Gluten Free Peanut Butter Crispy Treats - or use SunButter for a delicious treat

Well of course if I am going to have chocolate crispy treats...then I have to have peanut butter ones too!  I used an unsweetened peanut butter made from valencia peanuts in this recipe.

SunButter is delicious as well...I mix two types of sun flower seed butter together in a small mixing bowl, then return the mixture to the Sunbutter containers.

MaraNatha and Trader Joe's are two of my favorites.

This makes a perfect blend...not to sweet and not flavorless like some nut butters can be.  I bake with this combined mixture and use it on waffles, rice cakes, and pancakes.

 These are crunchy, melt in-your-mouth treats. No marshmallows needed - which is perfect for those of you who can't have marshmallows, like me!

Gluten Free Peanut Butter - or SunButter Crispy Treats                     makes 12 squares
1/2 cup honey, or agave syrup. I used 1/4 cup of each.
3/4 cup unsweetened peanut butter ( I used Kirkland brand with valencia peanuts
*SunButter is an option as well.
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups gluten free brown rice cereal. A regular crispy rice cereal is fine if gluten free is not needed.

Line an 8"x8" square pan with wax paper or spray with a non stick cooking spray.
In a large saucepan on medium heat, warm the honey and/or agave syrup, peanut butter, and coconut oil until creamy and smooth.  Remove from heat and add vanilla, mix well. Stir in brown rice cereal, mix to coat all pieces. Pour into an 8"x8" square pan and press down gently. Let sit until firm or refrigerate for faster results.
Cut into any size squares you like.  Refrigerate to store.  I love them frozen as well!!

These tasty treats are super fast to make...and disappear just as fast!!

Weight watcher followers should count 6 points per square.

A few quick steps:

Mix honey and/or agave syrup with nut butter and coconut oil. Heat on medium until creamy.
Remove from heat and add vanilla, mix well. 

Stir in brown rice cereal and mix well. Press into a pan prepared with a non stick spray or lined with wax paper.

Lining with wax paper works really well.  Just lift out to cut into squares.

Stack some up and pass them around.
