Hippy Bars {Healthy Rice Crispy Treats}

We love these bars from Plant Over Processed! They are so delicious, easy to make, and offer a healthy dose of essential omega-3 fatty acids from hemp seeds.

Try adding dried cranberries, crushed peanuts, or shredded coconut to the top layer of melted chocolate. You could also shape them into balls dipped in chocolate for the kids. Yum!


{Makes 2 medium sized bars. Adjust the recipe for more servings}


  • 1/3 cup + 2 tsps peanut butter

  • 2 tsps maple syrup

  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

  • 2 tsps hemp hearts (hulled hemp seeds)

  • 1/2 cup brown rice cereal

  • 1/4 cup dairy-free chocolate chips (we like Hu gems)


1. In a large bowl, mix 2/3 of the peanut butter, the maple syrup, and vanilla with a wooden spoon until smooth. Then stir in hemp hearts and crispy rice cereal.

2. Line an 8-inch brownie pan with parchment paper and pat the mixture into the pan (if only making a small amount, the mixture will not spread to the edge of the pan, which is ok!).

3. Combine the chocolate chips and remaining 1/3 peanut butter in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for 30 seconds, stir, microwave for an additional 30 seconds, and stir again. If it’s not fully melted, microwave for another 30 seconds.

4. Spread the chocolate–peanut butter mixture evenly over the hemp and crispy rice base and put in the freezer to set for 30 minutes.

5. Remove, cut into 2-inch squares, and store in an airtight container in the freezer.
