  • 3/4 cup toasted walnuts (64 grams)
  • 1 1/4 cups brown rice crisps (45 grams)
  • 1 cup plain oat cereal, like these Sprouted O’s
  • 1/2 cup quick oats (40 grams)
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon walnut butter (or peanut butter)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup brown rice syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt


  • Combine walnuts, brown rice crisps, oat cereal, quick oats, and chocolate chips in a bowl.
  • Over medium heat, bring walnut butter, maple syrup, brown rice, and salt to a quick simmer. Cook for 4 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and pour over dry ingredients. Stir quickly, coating all ingredients.
  • Pour into an 8x8 inch pan, circle or square, and use the back of a measuring cup to firmly press down and spread out evenly. You want the bars to be tightly packed.
  • Let sit for 1 1/2 hours before cutting. Store in a sealed container, for up to five days.
