Brown Rice Crispy Balls…
I’ve been wanting to make some sort of “healthy” treat for M (and me) to eat. After playing around the kitchen… I came up with these Brown Rice Crispy Balls. They are so easy to make!! And so good!
The ingredients are simple:
- 2 1/2 cups Brown Rice Crispy’s
- 1 tablespoon Chia Seeds (optional)
- 1/2 cup Brown Rice Syrup
- 1/2 cup Sunflower Seed Butter (or any nut butter)
In a small sauce pan, combine brown rice syrup and nut butter, and stir over medium-low heat just until mixture is combined and smooth.
Would you just look at that!! I swear I could’ve just consumed the nut butter/rice syrup mixture! It was sooo good!!
Pour nut butter sauce over rice crispy’s and chia seeds. Stir until combined.
Roll into 1 inch balls. I used a melon ball scooper. It worked perfectly 🙂
My goodness these things are so good! M LOVED them! They were so easy for her to eat! Plus… I have a healthy treat for me too 🙂
I’m thinking you should make these pretty soon 🙂
Those look so good! I think my husband would love them. Maybe I will make him some before I go on vacation. 🙂
love that kid-friendly recipe! i think i might try to make these for church this week…
i really love stuff by lady gaga for workouts…it really pumps me up! but earth wind and fire is a good one too 😉
Love the idea of these treats. Oh gosh..I get sick of my music SO EASILY, but you can never go wrong with MJ 😀
I don’t mind 94deg weather if it’s dry. Unfortunately where I live it is beyond humid. The humidity tacks on at least 10degrees! crazy.
I like Bulletproof by La Roux, and Cooler than Me by Michael Posner
those rice balls look so good, I want to try those
Those rice balls look really good!!! As for songs…I love Lady Gaga when working out…she has such a great beat!
The rice balls so great..and so easy to make!
PS I love that M’s wearing a headband. That’s ridiculously cute. She should be a Gap baby.
I love the little hairband, so cute! I agre with Tracey that she should be a GAP baby.
I made similar rice balls once and I loved them! Now I am trying to figure out what I can use instead of nut butter as I’ve had to eliminate nuts from my life. 🙁
I am LOVING her little lunch plates! Ahhh!
I like POP music to workout to, so I always just go to itunes and the top rated…
Darude…Sandstorm! Techno….but totally pumps you up!
So cute! Love little M’s lunch and the look of those rice krispie treats. I may have to make those VERY soon!
These look so awesome 🙂 You’re the coolest mom ever. Her lunch looks waaay better than mine!!
I always listen to country when I work out. I’m sort of obsessed with Sugarlands new single 🙂
these balls look amazing! when i was a lil girl my grandma used to take cocoa krispies + PB + who else knows what and melt it all together and make bars..these look great and clearly healthier than gram’s recipe 🙂
fave workout tracks..omg i listen to some ghetto stuff sometimes while working out, makes me feel so badass LOL and also 80s hair bands..and Lady Gaga!
Great, I never knew this, thanks.
I would have dug into that “batter” it looks so good. I always eat my granola bars before I freeze them! I am also in need of some new music on my ipod, but I agree with Averie, I do love Lady Gaga, also Maroon 5. I’ll be coming back here for some suggestions!
WHY am I just now finding your blog? I love it!!! I have a 21 month old daughter and I always love connecting with moms I can get ideas from and share with on healthy parenting. That lunch looks right up something my girl’s alley. PS – She is M too. 🙂
Also, I followed you on Twitter. I’m TinaFFF from http://www.faithfitnessfun.com. Nice to meet you!!
I love brown rice crispie treats but never thought to throw in chia seeds. Good idea!
These treats look amazing!!! So good! M’s lunch looks great!
Those rice crispy balls look so good! I love her lunch plates! They are always so cute. I miss my kids eating like that…I don’t know how I am going to feed two growing boys for the next 9 or more years?!

my fave workout song (when i do workout) is metric’s “combat baby”
