ABOUT THE RECIPE:

No baking required for these squishy, sweet and crunchy Date n’ Rice Cereal Treats. So easy to make, plus they are healthy and delicious!
Makes 12 to 16 Treats
Gluten-free

2

INGREDIENTS:

1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup pitted and finely chopped Medjool dates
2 cups crisp brown rice cereal, (use gluten-free cereal if you are gluten-free)

3

INSTRUCTIONS:

Line an 8-inch square baking pan with unbleached parchment paper, leaving an overhang of 2-inch “wings” on two opposite sides of the pan. Put the maple syrup, peanut butter and vanilla (see note) into a medium-sized bowl and mix together using a large rubber spatula or spoon. Fold in the dates. Gently fold in the rice cereal.

4

Spread the cereal mixture in an even layer in the prepared pan and press firmly, to make the treats more compact. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight before dividing into little “bites” (see note). Serve cold. Stored in a tightly covered container and refrigerated, treats will keep for 3 days.

5

Chef’s note: These treats are quite soft and “squishy,” even after they are chilled. If you prefer a firmer treat, add 2 to 3 tablespoons of melted vegan buttery spread to the mixture when the maple syrup is added. Proceed as directed.
