A Clean Eat – Chocolate Peanut Butter Chews

I found this recipe on the Eat Clean Diet site, and we just tried these this afternoon and they are great! No baking- just mixing and rolling into balls. Pop them in the freezer, and 5 minutes later they are ready! I substituted agave nectar for the brown rice syrup. I’m sure honey would work just as well. I used Kashi’s 7 Whole Grain Puffs for the brown rice cereal. I hope you get the chance to make them. Enjoy!

No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Chews

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Crisp Brown Rice Cereal
  • 1/4 cup smooth all-natural peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp organic brown rice syrup
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp dark chocolate chips

Instructions

Line a plate with parchment paper. In a medium sized bowl, stir together the peanut butter, brown rice syrup, 2 tbsp chocolate chips, and vanilla extract. Microwave on high for 35-45 seconds. Stir well and immediately add in the 1 tsp cocoa powder. Stir until incorporated. Immediately stir in the rice crisp cereal until all rice crispies are coated.

Wet hands thoroughly and shape the mixture into ‘golf-balls’. Press mixture together firmly into balls so it will hold. Wet hands after each ball is formed so the mixture will not stick to your hands. Place the balls onto parchment paper and freeze for 5 minutes. You can keep these chews in the freezer in a sealed container.

per large ball, makes 7 balls: 113 kcals, 6 grams fat, 14 grams carbs, 8 grams sugar, 2 grams protein.
