Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips
  • cups crisped rice cereal
  • cups old fashion rolled oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
  • cup chopped almonds
  • ½ cup brown rice syrup
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • cup smooth natural peanut butter

Instructions
 

  • Grease and line a 9"x13" pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a very large bowl, mix together the chocolate chips, cereal, oats, coconut, and almonds. Set aside.
  • In a small pot, boil the brown rice syrup and coconut oil for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and add to it the peanut butter, stirring until smooth.
  • Pour the wet ingredients over the dry and mix with a large silicone spatula until evenly distributed. The chocolate chips will melt a bit--this is perfectly okay.
  • Spread the mixture into the prepared pan, using wax paper and your hands to press it down evenly.
  • Refrigerate for at least one hour before attempting to cut.
  • Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
