These rice crispy bars aren’t overly sweet, we use 60% dark chocolate, and it is just perfect whenever you crave something sweet. My 3-year-old loves it! We are used to eating darker chocolate at home so that’s the way we like it! But if you desire you can use a different kind of chocolate.

Ingredients to Make the Best Healthy Chocolate Rice Bars

  • Dark Chocolate Chips: I like using the 60% dark chocolate chips from Ghirardelli, but feel free to use your favorite one! I strongly recommend trying this recipe with dark chocolate first then if you like it sweeter you can blend in some milk chocolate chips.
  • Coconut Oil: Used to make the melted chocolate more fluid for mixing.
  • Peanut Butter: Use a natural peanut butter with only nuts or nuts + salt in the composition. You don’t need extra oil or sugar!
  • Rice Cakes: you will need 5 rice cakes crumbled up for this recipe.

Step by Step Instructions to Make Rice Crispy Chocolate Bars

  • Melt the chocolate with coconut oil in the microwave in 20 second intervals until fully melted. Took me 4 increments of 20 seconds but will vary depending on your microwave power and the chocolate you use.
  • Add peanut butter and mix.
  • Break the rice cakes into small pieces and mix into the chocolate mixture.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Spread the chocolate rice mixture evenly and refrigerate for at least 1h until completely firm.
  • Slice with a knife or break with your hands and enjoy cold!

Recipe tips and tricks

  • Since there is some variation in the rice cake sizes, I have also added the weight (see recipe card). I suggest that you add half of the crushed rice cakes, mix, and add the remaining quantity to facilitate.
  • Use a medium or large sized bowl to mix.
  • If you like thinner chocolate bars use a larger baking tray and spread the contents a bit more.

Storage Instructions

  • You can store these crispy rice chocolate rice cake bars in an airtight Ziplock bag or container for up to 5 days in the fridge and up to 3 months in the freezer.
  • I don’t recommend storing them at room temperature as the chocolate may melt.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s inside a crunch bar?

Store bought crunch bars normally use milk chocolate (sugar, chocolate, cocoa butter, milk, soy lecithin, artificial flavors), crisped rice (rice flour, sugar, barley, salt). This healthier recipe only contains minimum amount of sugar from the dark chocolate, it is a much better option than store bought!
