So, these taste AMAZING. I'm not super big on chocolate so instead of adding the chips to them I just melted them in a double boiler and did a light drizzel of chocolate over the top.
The bad news is that they will not stay together. I'm thinking maybe I need to use less brown rice syrup. I don't know.
It calls for 1 and 3/4 cups which was almost the entire jar, so I figured I would just scrape down the sides and use the whole jar...I fear it was a bad idea. Going to have to try again and be more precise.
The are super sweet and peanut buttery, DELICIOUS!
mine hold together most times...its when i get crazy and think i have it under control and dont follow my own recipie that it goes off...but they still taste good even when they fall apart. but yes try to follow exactly and they should get hard actually. glad you like them! and erin yes! who needs marshmellows!!! so good to see you the other day!! christopher loved the picture of your little muffin! and thanks for the insane treats you brought me. what was the bakery called? love alicia
I'm going to try making these tomorrow. I've been eating an energy bar for breakfast everyday since college (boring I know!) I think this would be a great substitute cause its sweet and has the same type of texture along with some protein..
Awesome treats! I made the superhero variation of these treats last night and it was love at first bite. hubby loved them too. I used a box of ErewhonCrispyBrown Rice Cereal, Lundberg's Organic Sweet Dreams Brown Rice Syrup, almond butter(can't remember the brand) and a pinch of 'real salt' - my batter was plenty sticky so when i packed it down into pyrex, it made nice tight bars. Alicia - thank you for sharing your recipes!
