Makes 18 bars

Cocoa Peanut Butter Bars (Made with Seeds)

You’ll Need

  • 3 cups brown rice cereal
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup natural creamy peanut butter
  • ¾ cup honey
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¾ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ cup cocoa

Prep and Cook

  • 1
    Spray the inside of a large bowl with non-stick spray. Combine the cereal, oats, and seeds and set aside.
  • 2
    In a medium saucepan, combine brown sugar, peanut butter, honey, cinnamon and salt over medium heat. Stir until completely melted and smooth. Remove from heat and stir in cocoa.
  • 3
    Pour the chocolate mixture over the cereal mixture and stir until evenly coated. This will take some work as the peanut butter mixture is quite thick. Keep working it until all of the dry ingredients are well combined.
  • 4
    Press into a greased 9x13-inch pan. Cool at room temperature before cutting into bars.
