Author Notes: A vegan, gluten-free version of a classic. Crispy brown rice cereal held together with maple syrup, peanut butter and agar agar flakes

~ Adapted from Heidi Swanson's Supernatural Cooking Cookbook


Serves 18

  • 3/4 cup unsalted peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon fine-grain sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon agar agar flakes
  • 4 cups unsweetened (or lightly sweetened) crisp brown rice cereal
  • 1 cup nuts, toasted (** Optional)
  1. Line two muffin tins with about 18 muffin/cupcake wrappers, and set aside.
  2. Combine the peanut butter, maple syrup, salt, and agar flakes in a large saucepan over low heat and stir constantly until smooth, hot, melted, and bubbling just a bit.
  3. Add the cereal and 3/4 cup of the nuts (if using), and stir until well coated.
  4. Spoon two or three heaping Tbsp of the mix into each muffin wrapper and press into place with the back of a spoon.
  5. Alternately, if you want krispy squares, you can transfer it to an 8 by 8-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with the remaining nuts and refrigerate until completely cool
