Homemade Luna Bars

not paleo but gluten free for my girls

(Can be gluten-free!)

Inspired by these.

  • 3 cups rice crispies (I used brown rice crispies)
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt (I used salted pb, too)
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 T nut butter (for lower-cal option, see below link)
  • 1/2 cup sticky sweetener, such as agave or brown rice syrup (I used agave)
  • 2-3 T protein powder (you can omit)
  • melted chocolate chips or No-Sugar Chocolate Sauce

Mix your pb, sweetener, extract, and salt. Melt (either in the microwave or stove), then pour over the cereal and powder, and stir very well, making sure to coat all the crispies. Smush and smash the crispies. (Get mad; it’s fun!) Line a pan with wax paper and spread the mixture evenly into the pan. Place a sheet of wax paper on top of the mixture, then press down as firmly as you can. Really press it down! Spread the chocolate on top, and freeze for at least a half hour before slicing.
