- 1⁄2 cup (125 g) unsalted almond butter
- 1⁄2 cup (120 ml) brown rice syrup

- 1⁄3 cup (55 g) vegan mini dark chocolate chips
I used to love rice crispy treats when I was a kid. I mean, I still love the taste, but I don’t love all the butter and sugar they contain. These bars are my modern-day take with a healthier twist. They’re the perfect combo of salty and sweet. I like to make mine with almond butter, but feel free to use cashew or peanut butter instead. You can also use maple syrup in place of the rice syrup; just keep in mind that the bars might not stick together quite as well.
