Just keep the healthy thing to yourself. “Health should be a stealth exercise. Do not talk about it. Sneak stuff in.”


  • 4 cups crispy brown rice cereal
  • 1 cup brown rice syrup
  • 3/4 cup nut butter
  • Dash umeboshi vinegar or tiny pinch of sea salt
  • Dash vanilla
  • ½ cup vegan chocolate chips


  • Pour cereal into a large mixing bowl. In a small saucepan, heat brown rice syrup, nut butter, vinegar (or salt), and vanilla over medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture is smooth, thinned out, and bubbling a little. Reduce heat to low. Keep stirring while it bubbles at low heat for at least 3 minutes.
  • Pour rice syrup mixture onto cereal and mix well with a wooden spoon. Let cool until you can add chocolate chips without them melting completely - about 5 to 10 minutes. Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Pour into a lightly oiled 8x8 inch Pyrex pan or baking pan and flatten with a wet spatula. Let cool. Slice and serve.


  • Add chocolate chips at the end of heating syrup and nut butter, so chocolate melts before being mixed with cereal. This gives the treats an overall chocolate look and taste.
  • Add nuts and/or raisins.
