  • 3 cups puffed rice cereal 
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)

Tips for Making this Recipe

  • Make sure not to skip lining your pan with parchment paper – these bars are sticky and it will be difficult to remove them from the pan without the parchment layer.
  • You can use any puffed rice cereal you’d like for this recipe, but we like the Whole Foods Brown Puffed Rice cereal.
