  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter (look for natural, no sugar added)
  • 1/3 cup raw honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp dark chocolate chips
  • 2 cups crispy rice cereal
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 1 tbsp milk* (see note below)


  • Line a 9x9 pan or 7x11 with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan, heat peanut butter and honey over medium heat, stirring constantly to avoid burning.
  • Stir for 2 minutes until mixture is smooth. Remove from heat.
  • Add in vanilla and chocolate chips and stir to fully incorporate. The chocolate chips should melt with the remaining heat.
  • Mix in crispy rice cereal and oats until completely coated in peanut butter mixture.
  • Pour mixture into prepared pan, smashing down with the back of mixing spoon.
  • Place foil or plastic wrap on top of mixture and press down firmly to spread mixture throughout the pan.
  • Cover chill in the fridge for 2 hours.
  • Remove from fridge and cut into ~16 bars
  • *Note, if it seems too dry once adding in cereal and oats you can add in 1 tbsp of milk to get mixture to come together. I've made these several times, sometimes I need it, sometimes I don't.
