  • 3/4 cup peanut butter or almond butter, soy nut butter
  • 1/3 cup light agave nectar or raw honey
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp fresh nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp agar powder
  • 4 cups crispy brown rice cereal
  • 3/4-1 tsp sea salt depending on saltiness of peanut butter
  • 4 ounces dairy free bittersweet chocolate


  • Heat all ingredients except chocolate together on low heat.
  • Stir constantly.
  • When ingredients are melted and it just starts to bubble (agar should be dissolved), add the cereal.
  • Mix together.
  • Let cool for about 5 minutes.
  • Scoop and form into balls. (Use a 1 1/2 - 2 TBS scoop)
  • You may need to finish the form with your hands. Rest on a lined baking sheet. Let completely cool.
  • Once cooled, melt bittersweet chocolate on low heat.
  • Dip balls into chocolate and rest back on lined baking sheet.
  • Once all balls are dipped, drizzle rest of chocolate on top of balls to decorate.


  • If you don't want to use the agar agar, eliminate it by simply heating the liquid sugars first to 240F. Then add the rest of the ingredients (except the chocolate). Once blended add the cereal. Follow the rest of the instructions in the recipe.


*If running short on time, you can simply put mixture in a lined 9x9 baking dish and let set. Cut and serve as peanut butter rice krispie treats. Copywright of Nourishment Connection
