In my search for goodies that aren’t loaded with sugar I came up with this recipe that’s just as easy as the traditional rice krispy bar recipe; easier really since it can be done in the microwave instead of the stove top. My apologies that you may have trouble finding all of these ingredients in a traditional grocery store and if you have to sub more traditional ingredients that’s fine, it just won’t be quite as healthy as my version, but hey, anything is better than the sugar-laden, butter clogged traditional rice krispy bar, right?

The green powder is optional but I add it to all things chocolate. The chocolate hides the flavor. Trust me, no one will know there’s spinach in their chocolate bar so there’s no reason for not packing extra veggies into the dessert.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup agave nectar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (choose a brand without added sugar)
  • 1/2 cup grain-sweetened chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon green powder (I use Isagenix organic green powder but you can use whatever brand is available to you)
  • 1 serving chocolate protein powder, 1/4 cup (I use Isagenix organic but again, use whatever you have available just make sure there is no white sugar added to it)
  • 4 cups brown-rice krispies (these are rice krispies made with brown rice & no added sugar)

In a large glass bowl microwave agave nectar and peanut butter for one minute. Stir until well mixed. Microwave for another two minutes until mixture boils for 30 seconds to one minute.

Remove from microwave and stir in chocolate chips.

Microwave coconut oil for one minute or until melted. Pour into bowl. Stir until chips are melted.

Stir remaining ingredients (except rice krispies) until well mixed. Stir in rice krispies.

Pour into wax paper lined 8 x 8 pan. Refrigerate until cool. Cut into squares and store in fridge.

If your family doesn’t thank you with sloppy chocolate kisses then you didn’t make it right :)
