  • 3/4 cup peanut butter at room temp (I like smooth unsweetened nut butter)
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp chopped dark chocolate or a mix of dark chocolate and mini chocolate chips
  • 5 cup rice krispies or chocolate rice krispies
  • 2 tsp oil or maple syrup to help bind optional, as needed

US Customary – Metric


  1. Add peanut butter, coconut sugar, vanilla, maple syrup to the food processor, process for a minute to mix the sugar.
  2. Add chocolate, salt, 1 cup krispies and pulse to mix and break most of them. Add the remaining rice krispies and pulse to mix and break half of the krispies.
  3. Shape using hands or a scoop. Hands will warm the nut butter making it easier to bind. If using a scoop you might need to add maple or oil so that the mixture sticks easily as some nut butters are dryer.
  4. Shape, chill for a few mins and serve. Store refrigerated for upto 2 weeks, freeze for upto a month.
