I have been teasing these new peanut butter rice krispies for awhile now and they are finally here!

I have shared these with a few friends and family members and everyone has been obsessed. You know I am here for anything chocolatey and peanut butter let alone rice crispy treats!

These healthy Peanut Butter Cup Rice Crispy Treats are made with no marshmallows or refined sugar.

Imagine I put a peanut butter cup in the center of a rice crispy treat and then made it a bit lighter and healthier.. That is what we are making over here.

These are the best sweet snack and dessert for kids to enjoy and adults. They are a guaranteed crowd pleaser and you can bring them to a birthday party, to the office for everyone to enjoy or just make them at home and eat them solo like I often do.

You only need 5 ingredients total to make these lighter rice krisipies! All gluten-free too.

  • Creamy peanut butter – the creamier the better. I use this one.
  • Liquid coconut oil – or melt solid coconut and let it cool
  • Wedderspoon manuka honey – the key to getting this extra sticky and sweet!
  • Brown rice cereal – I prefer an unsweetened one!
  • Dark chocolate – code RACHL for free shipping on this chocolate.

  1. Line a muffin tin with liners (or grease an 8×8 baking dish and use that instead of liners)
  2. In a large bowl, add the honey, coconut oil, peanut butter and cereal and mix all together making sure all of the cereal is “wet” and coated with the pb, oil and honey. If it looks dry, add a little more honey
  3. Fill each muffin cup with the cereal mixture (it makes 9-10 for me) then add to freeze for 10 minutes to set
  4. Melt the dark chocolate in microwave or over stove in a sauce pan then drizzle on top of each krispie treat then add a dollop of peanut butter on top of each and set the treats in freezer or fridge to set


*Store in fridge for 1 week

  1. I made these today with my 2 boys. They LOVED them! We used sunbutter instead of peanut butter because my oldest has a peanut allergy.
