This recipe is really easy and really good! (And for about $12 a batch I was very relieved!) I'm going to try different nut butters and see how they turn out too. Two thumbs up on this one! Thanks for sharing it!

These taste and look exactly like Full Bars. I love that this is made using simple ingredients and is naturally sweetened. Make sure to get puffed BROWN rice (sold in bags in the natural foods section, near the cereal). The other conventional kinds have extra ingredients and is made of white rice. It makes a huge pan that will probably last a week or more. Do these freeze well? Thanks for the recipe!
