Need a healthier alternative to the traditional Rice Crisp Cereal Squares that your kids will love. These can be made with natural salted peanut butter instead of Tahini. They make a perfect after school snack or even a grab n go breakfast alongside your favourite smoothie. One of the keys to making these healthier is using sprouted brown rice crispy cereal. Sprouted grains can allow for the vitamins and minerals in grains to be absorbed better and for those like myself who can be sensitive to grains, it seems to help.
Melt the tahini, oil, maple syrup and vanilla over medium low heat, stirring as it melts. This will take about 15 minutes or so. Add the sea salt and cacao powder and whisk until there are no lumps and the mixture is smooth.
Remove from heat and stir in the rice cereal. Line a 8 x 8 inch square glass baking pan with parchment paper. Pour the mixture into the pan and use a spatula to press down as you spread it evenly in your dish.
Place in the refrigerator to firm up for at least an hour or so. Cut into 12 squares and enjoy. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
