Vegan Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cereal Bars are the ultimate treat to make on a sunday and have on hand throughout the week!

they’re incredibly easy to make and 10/10 delicious. you may just have every ingredient sitting in your pantry!

you will need some crispy rice cereal, runny peanut butter, vanilla extract, coconut oil, maple syrup and chocolate chips.

that’s all of the ingredients needed to make Vegan Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cereal Bars, so it doesn’t get easier than that!

Vegan Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cereal Bars have to set in the freezer for a couple of hours and you can store them in the fridge or the freezer.

they’re honestly the best dessert to make ahead of time. if you have kids, they will LOVE them.

also, you can replace the peanut butter with another nut butter or seed butter.

additionally, if you don’t want to use crispy rice cereal, others will work, but just make sure the cereal is very crunchy.

to make this recipe even more fun, i added mini chocolate chips to the mixture, but that’s of course optional.

a dark chocolate coating on top with sprinkles completes the recipe but feel free to top with anything you like! sea salt flakes would also make an amazing addition.
