Peanut Butter and Chocolate Krispy Bars

This is a snack for those moments when fruit and soy yogurts just won't do the job, and you want sticky crunchy chocolatey decadence! 

2 cup puffed rice cereals or rice crackers (non sweetened whole grain)
4 T maple syrup or other liquid sweetener
1/2 cup peanut or almond butter
1/3 cup chocolate chips
pinch of salt
optional: seeds, nuts and dried fruits

Use more or less of the maple syrup, chocolate and nut butter depending on how decadent you want this to be. For a healthier version replace the chocolate with raisins. 

Gently heat the liquid sweetener over low heat until it simmers. Switch off heat and pour over the rice cereals (if you are using rice crackers crumble these up into small pieces). Mix in the nut butter until well combined. Wait until the mixture is completely cool then add the chocolate chips and stir in well. Spread out the mixture into a small baking tray and press gently to flatten with the back of a wooden spoon. Let it set in the fridge, then crunch and munch away!
