Peanut Butter Crispeez

These are easy and no bake - tasty and nutritious too!

Peanut Butter Crispeez (Level 2)

1/2 cup sugar substitute (I use Whey Low)
1/2 cup light agave nectar
3/4 cup sugar free peanut butter
3 cups puffed brown rice cereal

Lay out 2 pieces of waxed paper on your countertop, and pour the puffed rice into a large mixing bowl.

Put the sugar, agave nectar and peanut butter into a medium sized sauce pan over medium heat. Stir until combined and keep stirring until the peanut butter is melted and everything is combined and just starting to bubble. Pour over the puffed rice and stir to combine.

Drop onto the waxed paper in balls, press down slightly. I made them into medium and small sized cookies and like them both ways. Put them in the refrigerator, still on the wax paper, to chill and set.

It looks like this will yield 2 dozen small cookies, and just over a dozen medium cookies. Store in a ziploc bag - they do not need to be refrigerated for storage.

This is definitely an experiment we enjoyed the first time and I will make them again!
