Peanut Butter Pretzel Rice Crispies Bars

I was obsessed with rice crispies treats as a kid. I loved making them, covering the kitchen with melted marshmallows (sorry Mom!) and mostly loved eating them. My mind may have been blown the first time I ever had one with peanut butter. Crispy, sweet, and salty – a perfect combination. This recipe is inspired by those childhood memories and adapted from a recipe I saw on Chocolate Covered Katie. I switched out the peanut butter for PB2 and subbed some honey for agave since it isn’t my favorite ingredient. You could easily add some chocolate chips to this recipe and it would be delicious, or serve them with some vanilla ice cream. Yum.

    What is PB2

      PB2 is a peanut butter product that has about 1/4 of the calories and fat than peanut butter. It comes in a powder form that you mix with water and is delicious. If you click on the link for it you can read more about it on Amazon. I use it all the time as a substitute for peanut butter.

      I’m surprised as mine stayed together great. Did you push down the mixture into the pan after combining it all?

    Just curious: what brown rice cereal do you use?

      I just used a generic brown rice version from either Whole Foods or Trader Joes.
