26814620_1834221746619014_6434324048142301458_n.jpg
Serves: 9
Prep time: 5 minutes
Freeze time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Coconut oil
4 cups brown rice crisps (or classic Rice Krispies)
½ cup all-natural peanut butter (or other nut butter), partially melted
½ cup brown rice syrup
3 scoops of USN BlueLab™ 100% Whey Protein Vanilla flavour
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preparation
Grease a 9-inch by 9-inch pan with coconut oil or line it with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, mix together melted peanut butter, brown rice syrup, protein powder and vanilla until it forms a dough consistency.
Add brown rice crisps to the peanut butter mixture. Use your hands to gently fold the rice crisps into the mixture. Then, pour mixture into the pan.
Using a spatula, spread mixture out evenly and press into pan so the bars are compact.
Place into freezer for at least 30 minutes
Before serving or storing, use a sharp knife to cut your treats into squares.

Pro Tip
Do not substitute honey or agave for brown rice syrup, since this sticky ingredient is essential to the recipe’s texture. Shop USN BlueLab™ 100% Whey Protein: http://ow.ly/NilV30hPnW5
