From Scratch: Crispy Rice Peanut Butter Bites
Need some energy but want full control over the ingredients in your treats? Look no further!
These tasty, bite-sized snacks are quick and easy to make, and don’t require any baking. If you have little hands to keep busy, this is a fun recipe to make together – you can learn about fractions and get them to help make their own food. Learning can be so sweet!
If you have family or friends with allergies, you can adapt ingredients to accommodate. For example, get gluten free oats, or use nut butter instead of peanut butter.
