Ooey gooey butterscotch yum. That’s what these Butterscotch Rice Krispie bars are and I am in love. A simple small batch no-bake recipe that whips up in a snap full of rice krispie cereal, whole grain oats, peanut butter, and maplesyrup. One might even go as far as saying a fun breakfast alternative.

Took A Few Tries
I attempted this recipe several times before it matched what I had envisioned in my head. First time around, they were delicious but way too hard and brittle. Second time around, the butterscotch separated and burnt. The third time, as they say, was the charm.
The best part about this recipe is the minimal ingredients, equipment, and time needed. I made it in the microwave, but it could easily be done on the stovetop should you be a kitchen baking purist. So grab a large microwave friendly mixing bowl and let’s get going.
Easy to Make
Let’s begin with the maple syrup, peanut butter, and butterscotch chips in the bowl and heat them in the microwave in 30-second intervals. Give it a quick stir after each interval until it is fully melted and smooth.
Next, add in the rice krispie cereal, whole grain oats, and coarse sea salt. Mix, mix, and mix until all the dry ingredients are fully incorporated. Add in a splash of fun sprinkles, give a quick stir with a spatula, and into the prepared 9×4 inch baking pan. Let’s these ooey-gooey bars of butterscotch delight chill in the fridge for an hour or two, slice up, and enjoy!
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 7 days. But let’s be honest…these Butterscotch Rice Krispie bars aren’t going to last 7 days. 😉
