Peanut Butter Rice Bars

These are a healthy alternative to the standard Rice Krispy Treats.  These are made with 1 ingredient brown rice plus protein-packed peanut butter.   I have also tried puffed wheat or kamut.  Both are acceptable substitutes for the rice and up the fiber intake.  Makes a great snack, dessert, or even breakfast-on-the-go.  My family loves them…including me and I’m not a fan of peanut butter!
