Healthy Peanut Butter and Chocolate Krispy Treats

Servings: 16 treats
Prep Time: 45 mins
Total Time: 45 mins
These Healthy Peanut Butter and Chocolate Krispy Treats are rich, sweet, crunchy, and chewy. They sure don’t taste refined sugar free, high protein, and gluten free in the slightest!


Krispy Treats

  • 4 cups Crispy Brown Rice Cereal
  • ½ cup Brown Rice Syrup
  • ½ cup Natural Peanut Butter
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Liquid Stevia Extract
  • tsp Salt
  • cup Vanilla Whey Protein Powder (64g)

Chocolate Layer



  • Line an 8x8” brownie pan with parchment paper.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, add the crispy brown rice cereal.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the brown rice syrup, peanut butter, vanilla extract, stevia extract and salt. Stir in the protein powder.
  • Dump in the crispy brown rice cereal and gently fold together. It will take a few minutes to get everything incorporated (you can use your hands if you like)! Scoop the mixture into the prepared pan. Flatten it out and press it down to make it compact.
  • Spread the melted chocolate over the krispy treat layer. Refrigerate while you make the frosting.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the protein powder, maple syrup and peanut butter. Scoop the mixture into a piping bag with round tip (#804) and pipe the frosting over the chocolate layer. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, then slice into 16 squares. Serve immediately, or store in a tightly sealed container in the fridge. Keeps for ~1 week.

Recipe Notes

  • **Depending on the protein powder you use, you may need to add water to make it "pipeable" -- I sometimes add ~2 tbs.
  • I originally wasn't going to share the recipe here because I worked so incredibly hard on publishing Naughty or Nice.  But I wanted to provide it here because that way, you can determine whether or not the cookbook is for you!
