Another treat- this time on the healthier side

We have been munching and sharing these for the past two days.  I just can't get over how good they are and at the same time a much better choice for a treat.

Chocolate Crispies -by Green Smoothie Girl -and tweaked by me

1 cup natural peanut butter
1/2 cup agave
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1/4 cup cocao powder (raw for a greater health benefit or the unsweetened is fine)
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 T. vanilla
1/4 tsp. sea salt
5 cups crisped brown rice or until reached your desired consistency (can find at a health food store)

Cream together all wet ingredients in a large bowl, by hand.  Add flaxseed, cocoa, salt and mix well.  Add crisped rice and stir until evenly mixed.  Form into balls or press in a 9x13 pan.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.

If you haven't gotten the coconut oil or agave yet- do!  Go buy a small thing of it to give it a try or if you are ready to make the plunge I can tell you where you can get it in larger quantities
