Crispy Peanut Butter Balls

These little guys are quick and easy to make. 

I found that making these with just almond butter (based on this recipe) made them a little bit too dry for my liking. I prefer to make these with peanut butter! I've been struggling with a peanut butter addiction for quite some time now. These treats give me the quick PB fix I need in no time flat. 
These are also super tasty when made with chocolate hazelnut butter! I use Justin's brand.

  • 1 cup crispy GF rice cereal (I used Nature's Path)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (or almond butter, or get crazy and use a mix of both!)
  • ¼ cup maple syrup or brown rice syrup (or agave maybe?)
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup vegan chocolate chips (optional)
  1. Line a plate or baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine wet ingredients: peanut butter, maple syrup, and vanilla, and microwave for 35-45 seconds. Stir. Repeat if the peanut butter is still not melted (or if you have a super old school microwave, like me).
  3. Add crispy rice cereal and chocolate chips (if using) to the wet ingredients and stir to coat.
  4. Wet hands with water and roll mixture into balls. Place on parchment paper.
  5. Place in refrigerator until hardened. Store in an airtight container in fridge. 


  1. These look delish! I'll have to try them soon! :-)

  2. You definitely should! Let me know how it goes or if you come up with some tasty new combinations : )

  3. They look tasty and easy to make too!
