I am a mom of 4. I love to cook and try new recipes.
Every once in awhile a new recipe is tried and the family often responds with "mom..it's a keeper" meaning add this one to the family recipe book. So here I've compiled them all in one spot so they're easy to get to and add to. Hope you enjoy them as much as we have, and maybe they'll be keepers for you as well.

Peanut Butter Rice Crispy treats (from Alicia Silverstone)

1 3/4 cups brown rice syrup

1 pinch sea salt

3/4 cup peanut butter or almond butter (all natural)

1 box brown rice crisps cereal

1/2 cup grain-sweetened chocolate chips (optional)

Heat rice syrup with a pinch of salt in a saucepan over low heat. When rice syrup liquefies, add peanut butter and stir until well combined and heated through.

Pour entire box of cereal into a large bowl. Pour rice syrup mixture on top. Use your hands to incorporate everything together (mix in grain-sweetened chocolate chips at this point, if using).

Press down into an 8- ×8-inch or 9- ×13-inch baking dish. Wet your fingers as your press down to keep them from sticking. Let cool for 1 hour before cutting into squares.
