Soy Nut Butter Rice Cereal Bars

 1/4 cup Soy nut butter unsweetened
1T Agave Syrup
1/2 cup Karo dark syrup or regular
4 cups GF crispy rice cereal
Pan spray
 Combine soy butter, Karo syrup and Agave syrup.  Mix in the rice cereal.  Transfer mixture to a lightly oiled 8" square cake pan, and with the back of a spatula, press mixture very firmly into the pan.  Cover and chill for at least an hour, then cut into 8 bars. Will keep for several days in the refrigerator. Mix in unsweetened coconut flakes, chocolate chips, raisins, etc.
Tip-For an afternoon sweet treat top with GFCF chocolate icing or coconut flakes.
Tip-Due to many peanut allergies I like to make with Soy butter-that way I will feel comfortable sending them to school with Mac.  You can use Earth Balance Natural peanut butter agave sweetened, if you are not worrying about peanut allergies.


  1. This is very easy to make and much less expensive than the GF cereal bars you can get at the store. Our good friends Heather and Elwyn turned me on to Soy Nut butter. Their 3 year old son Gabriel has a life threatening peanut allergy. Mac can't tell the difference when I make with Soy Nut Butter or Natural Peanut Butter. So I always use the Soy Nut Butter now. Safe for all!

  2. MMMMMMMMMMMM,..I would add some melted vegan semisweet chocolate to the mix!

    tasty food! May greets from a recent gf foodie from Brussels, Belgium!

  3. Yes great idea!! Thanks for reading!
