Toddler Rice Nutbutter Bars the Whole Family Will Love

These are great for toddlers that are not allergic to nuts and nutbutter. They are loaded with protein and cut down on the sugar shock from traditional rice chrispie treats. You can make them for for you entire family as well, and I promise you they will love them. Plus for any holiday you can decorate them with a little icing or decor to make them more festive.

As a safety note make sure to give you child what is safe for them in terms of texture and bite size. Give your toddler what is safe for them to chew and swallow.

Rice Nutbutter Bars-Super Easy Style

2 tablespoons dairy free butter

In a soup pot and on medium heat, melt butter and stir in 1/2 cup cashew butter an 1/2 cup peanut butter. I use organic nut butters to ensure they are packed with nutrients, not chemicals and so they are not made with moldy nuts. Once you have ‘nut butter soup” in your pot, add the rice cereal and coat the cereal until throughly throughout. Quickly, before it cools, spread the mixture into the brownie pan to be 3/4 of an inch think. Cut the sheet of sticky cereal with a hard plastic knife or spatula into serving size squares or rectangles. Let them cool.

Serving: I put extra fresh nut butter on top of each bar and sprinkle with organic sunflower seeds. Maybe some honey or a strawberry too. Yummi.
