  • 1 ¼ cups puffed rice
  • ¼ cup peanut butter or any other nut butter
  • 3 tbsp maple or agave syrup
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • Pinch of salt
  • 70 g dairy-free chocolate melted


  • In a small pot, add the peanut butter, syrup, oil and salt. Bring to medium heat and mix constantly until you get a caramel consistency.
  • Pour over the puffed rice and mix.
  • Transfer to a lined pan with parchment paper, press the rice mix very well and add the melted chocolate on top (you can also use silicone molds to give it a specific shape like the one in the photos).
  • Pop in the fridge for 15 minutes and once it’s chilled, cut into squares or take them out of the silicone mold.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.
