Brown rice syrup is a liquid sweetener made from brown rice that has the consistency of honey. Since it is made from a whole grain it metabolizes more slowly and doesn’t send your blood sugar on a rollercoaster ride. This makes it an ideal treat, whether for kids or for yourself, during a mid-afternoon energy crash. These bars are easy to make and require no cooking.

Almonds contain the kind of good fat, monounsaturated fat, which studies have shown to reduce your risk for heart disease by 30-45%.

1 1/2 cup brown rice syrup
1 cup almond butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups brown rice crispies cereal (unsweetened preferred)
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup raisins or other dried fruit
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup pecans, chopped
1/2 cup almonds, chopped

Mix dry ingredients in large bowl. Set aside. Heat first 3 ingredients over low flame until well incorporated. Pour over dry ingredients and mix well. Using your hands works best. Pour into parchment-lined 8x8 casserole dish. Press down evenly into pan by lining with parchment paper to keep from sticking to your hands. Set aside to cool. Then cut to desired size.
