5 Minute + 5 Ingredient No-Bake Barney Butter Chews

BarneyButter's picture
  Crunchy almond butter 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Pure vanilla extract 1 Teaspoon
  Rice crispy cereal 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Gf Nature'S Path)
  Brown rice syrup 3 Tablespoon (Organic Type)
  Cacao nibs 1 Tablespoon (Chopped Chocolate)

1. Line a plate with parchment paper.
2. In a medium sized bowl, stir together the Barney Butter, brown rice syrup, and vanilla. Microwave on high for 35-45 seconds.
3. Stir well and immediately add in the rice crisp cereal and cacao nibs (or chopped chocolate). Stir very well until fully mixed.
4. Wet hands thoroughly and shape the mixture into ‘golf-balls’. Press mixture together firmly so it will hold. Wet hands after each ball is formed so the mixture will not stick to your hands.
5. Place the balls onto parchment paper and freeze for 5 minutes.

You can keep these chews in the freezer in a sealed container. I really enjoy them straight from the freezer. They remain nice and chewy.

Recipe Summary

Difficulty Level: 
Very Easy
Everyday, Party, Quick
These Barney Butter Chews could not be any easier and they make a simple pre-workout snack for about 100 calories each. They take 5 minutes to whip up, use just 1 bowl, and do not require an oven! You could even make them gluten-free quite easily too. We use the Nature’s Path Rice Crisp cereal that just happens to also be Gluten-Free.
