Peanut Butter Crisps

I live on peanut butter!  This is an absolute truth.  Not only is peanut butter a fantastic source of protein and fat it is delicious.  So when I was thinking about a different type of treat to add to my holiday platter this year I had to add a recipe with my favourite ingredient… you guessed… peanut butter!

21 Day Fix Peanut Butter Crisps

These Peanut Butter Crisps are perfect for a Christmas cookie platter, a good treat for kids and fit in the 21 Day Fix Plan as a treat!

Fantastic right!

I used holiday Rice Crispies to add a little festive cheer to these for Christmas.  They are very simple to make but one word of advice is to make sure you line the pan with parchment paper.  Without it I find these get stuck in the pan and break apart easily when you try and pull them out.  If you use parchment paper you can lift them out carefully when they are cooled and cut into squares.

  1. Home made sweets are always the best treats! On our christmas platter we will have some dried fruit and nuts, but maybe I should add some of your cookies also. We love peanuts!

  2. Love this kind of treat especially during holiday times, peanut butter, rice krispies. chocolate . Not only kids friendly but also brings out nostalgic memories.

    1. I think these would work fine with almond butter. I find that almond butter can be a little thicker than peanut butter so you may need to add a little more than what is called for in the recipe

    1. Hi Tammi! Thanks for asking. I updated my recipe card and didn’t see that my little coloured hearts to represent the containers dropped off in the process. I have scored these as 1 yellow, 1/2 a blue and 2 teaspoons. I would recommend using these as a treat when following the 21 Day Fix meal plan. I like to make a batch and freeze them. They freeze really well. My family also like them so they are also a great kid friendly treat!
