Chocolate Peanut Butter Crispy Treats Chocolate Peanut Butter Crispy Treats

These Chocolate Peanut Butter Crispy Treats bring back childhood memories of making a certain crispy rice cereal-based dessert on repeat with my mum. I created this healthier version which is considerably lower in sugar and higher in fibre.

Chocolate and peanut butter are a flavour match made in heaven and the two distinct layers give these treats another level of delightful textures to sink your teeth into.

They are vegan, gluten-free (provided you use GF oats) and don’t require any baking – just a fridge! I like to use puffed quinoa which is higher in protein, but you can use puffed rice if you prefer (or the cereal we all know and love).

If you like these Chocolate Peanut Butter Crispy Treats, I think you’ll LOVE my Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies, Peanut Butter Banana Caramel Squares, Blondie Brownie Bites, Trillionaire Shortbread, and Peanut Butter Protein Squares!
