rice krispie energy bites

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 16 squares 1x


  • 4 cups crispy rice cereal (I used Erewhon)
  • 1/2 cup almond butter (or peanut butter)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup protein powder
  • Optional: chocolate for melting


  1. Prepare a 9×9 baking pan by spraying it with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the cereal and protein powder. Set aside.
  3. In a small pan over medium heat, add almond butter and honey, stirring until the almond butter is melted and fully combined with the honey.
  4. Remove from heat and pour into the cereal mixture. Stir until everything is fully combined.
  5. Pour into prepared baking dish. Using the spatula or your hands, spread the mixture evenly in the pan, pressing down firmly.
  6. Optional: place chocolate into a microwave safe bowl and nuke on high in 20 second intervals, mixing between each. When chocolate is fully melted, drizzle over the top of the packed cereal mixture using a spoon.
  7. Place pan into fridge and allow to cool for ~30 minutes before cutting into squares.
