Ingredients
  • 2 cups organic gluten free crsipy rice
  • 1 cup gluten-free old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup raw almond slices
  • ¾ raw pecan pieces
  • ¾ cup shredded coconut
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup peanut butter

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil

Instructions
  1. Place the crispy rice, oats, almond slices, pecan pieces and shredded coconut into a mixing bowl.
  2. In a saucepan on low heat melt the coconut oil, add the peanut butter, brown sugar, honey, vanilla extract, coconut oil and salt.
  3. Whisk to combine evenly.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients in with the dry.
  5. Stir evenly to combine.
  6. Grease a 9x13 freezer proof dish with coconut oil spray
  7. Pour the combined ingredients into greased pan.
  8. Press the mixture down into the pan to flatten. Press hard to compress well this will help the bars to stick together.
  9. Place into the freezer for a minimum of 3 hours to set.
  10. Cut into bars or squares according to your preference for consumption.
  11. I cut mine to 2x3 inch in bars but these were a bit big for my kids so I'd suggest smaller for kids. My recommendation is 2x1.5 inch bars.
