Brown Rice Crispy Treats (healthy!)

I was looking for a great snack that could also double as dessert and still fit into my Real Food goal. This was the perfect snack. I love it, my boys love it, it's awesome. I got this recipe from Happy Healthy Mama and modified it just a tad.

Brown Rice Crispy Treats

1 cup natural peanut butter
1/2 cup honey *see note
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
4 cups puffed whole grain (I used 2 cups puffed brown rice and 2 cups puffed millet)

In a large bowl mix together peanut butter, honey, vanilla and cinnamon. Stir in the puffed grain. Wet hands or use a bit of oil to prevent sticking, and either roll into balls or press firmly into an 8x8 cake pan and slice into bars.

*Note: I only used half the honey the original recipe calls for. They still taste fabulous and are really sweet, I think twice as much honey would be too sweet for my taste. It would help them stick together better though, so if you have a hard time getting them to stick, try adding a bit more honey or just put a little coconut oil on your hands.
