My Favourite Cereal

These yummy bars are made with One Degree Sprouted Brown Rice Crisps. You can use the Brown Rice Crisps, Brown Rice Cacao Crisps or a mixture of the two like I did!

One Degree Sprouted Brown Rice Cacao Crisps are my favourite cereal and I was buying them long before my partnership with One Degree Organics. They taste amazing and you get all the great health benefits of sprouted brown rice with delicious cacao and coconut palm sugar.

The flavour is perfect and they’re my go-to cereal for snacking, breakfast, smoothie bowl topping and of course, making healthy rice crispy squares! Plus, they’re chocolate and you can’t beat that.

I love that they’re low in sugar and made with wholesome ingredients that One Degree Organics is completely transparent about. You can read exactly where every ingredient came from which is just the coolest thing ever!

How to Make Healthier Rice Crispy Squares

Traditional rice crispy squares are made with butter and marshmallows. This healthier, plant-based version of the family favourite is made with pure maple syrup and tahini, making them vegan, gluten-free, nut-free and refined sugar-free.

Making them couldn’t be easier either. Simply heat the maple syrup and tahini until smooth and creamy, bring to a very light boil, then mix with One Degree Sprouted Brown Rice Crisps, press into a pan, then freeze to set the bars before slicing into squares and enjoying.

They’re crispy, perfectly sweet with a hint of sea salt and kids and adults alike will love them! I like to make a batch and store them in the freezer for a chilled after dinner dessert.

Nut Butter Options

I used tahini in these to keep them nut-free and allergen-friendly, however, you can also use peanut butter, almond butter or sunflower seed butter as an alternative. I’ve made them with sunflower seed butter and they were delicious and of course, peanut butter is a classic.

These healthier rice crispy treats are plant-based, nut-free, gluten-free, refined sugar-free and you’ll need just 4 simple ingredients to make them. Kids and adults will love these sweet, crunchy bars.
