Healthy rice krispie bars

Rice krispie bars

This recipe uses all natural ingredients, with no refined sugar added, so to me that equals healthy.  Not low calorie, mind you, so you will still need to watch how many of these you eat at one time!

The original recipe came from a Whole Foods brochure, calling for rice crisps cereal.  Looking at the prices of gluten-free puffed rice cereal, I found it was much cheaper to buy some rice cakes (they’re thick here and I can’t seem to find any rice thins), and then smash them to bits.  That was great therapy, by the way, anything that involves smashing things to make some sort of food has always been soothing to me …

Healthy rice krispie bars

Prep Time 10 minutes


  • 2/3 cup almond butter
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 6 cups puffed rice cereal
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup flaxseed


  1. Melt the almond butter, honey, vanilla and cinnamon together in a microwave, or on the stove-top, and mix until thoroughly combined.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the rice, raisins and flaxseed.
  3. Pour the almond butter mixture over the cereal mixture and mix until all combined well.
  4. Place in a prepared pan (I used a 9" square baking pan lined with parchment paper) and push down on the mixture either with a spoon or your hands to make sure it is as compact as possible.
  5. Chill in the refrigerator or freeze until hard.
  6. Cut into bars (rectangle or square) depending on how many you wish to make.
  7. Store in either the refrigerator or freezer, depending on your personal preference.
