For the Peanut Butter Layer:

  • 1 cup peanut butter (melted)
  • 2 cups brown rice crisp cereal (gluten-free - I used Erewhon Crispy Brown Rice)
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup

For the Chocolate Topping:

  • 1 cup chocolate chips (dairy-free - I used Guittard Dark Chocolate Chips)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter


  • Line an 8x8 inch baking dish with parchment paper.
  • In a food processor, combine peanut butter, brown rice crisp cereal, unsweetened coconut and maple syrup. Process until combined and cereal is crushed.
  • Spoon into the baking dish and press down with slightly wet hands to create an even layer.
  • In a bowl, microwave chocolate in 30 second increments until melted. You can also do this in a double boiler over the stove. Stir in the peanut butter until completely melted and combined. Spoon over the peanut butter layer and smooth with a knife.
  • Place in the freezer or refrigerator for 20-30 minutes, or until set. Cut into 12 bars.
