Keto Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats
Rice Krispie treats are a staple in the snack world. They’re delicious, they’re super easy to make, and as far as snack foods go, they’re relatively healthy-ish. Sort of. A little. Maybe. Relatively speaking.
So it’s no surprise that they are a beloved part of many childhoods and the guilty pleasure of many adults.
You knew you were too cool for school if you whipped one of those shiny blue wrappers out of your lunchbox and flashed it to everyone at the lunchroom table.
Delicious -and popular- as they may be, traditional Rice Krispie treats are not exactly the perfect food for a person trying to live a ketogenic lifestyle. Traditional Rice Krispie treats, that is.
This keto peanut butter Rice Krispie treat is the perfect substitute for the real deal! It tastes just like the original that you have come to know and love! The only thing missing is the sugar and extra carbs.
One obvious difference, though, is the addition of yummy peanut butter into the mix! These Rice Krispie treats have been taken to the next level with the inclusion of this one yummy ingredient.
Peanut butter makes everything (or at least most things) better and these keto Rice Krispie treats are no exception.
Keto Rice Krispies With High Key Frosted Protein Cereal
By now, you might be thinking to yourself, “Okay how are they going to make Rice Krispies keto? Aren’t they full of carbs and sugar right out of the box??”
The answer, of course, is yes! At least mostly. Plain Rice Krispie cereal is very high in carbs and moderately low in sugar. Relatively speaking, of course.
Since this is the case, traditional Rice Krispie cereal won’t do.
Fear not, though, because HighKey has created an amazing Rice Krispie alternative that tastes just like the real thing, just without the carbs or sugar!
This keto friendly cereal is seriously amazing! Not only because they have managed to make a keto friendly version of an all-time classic, but because it works perfectly for this recipe and because it gives you one more option for a keto friendly breakfast!
We highly recommend this amazing keto substitution. You can pick yours up HERE!

How To Make Keto Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats
(scroll down below to view recipe card with full list of ingredients + instructions)
In a saucepan over medium heat on the stove, melt the butter.
Once melted, stir in the peanut butter
Add sugar free honey after the Peanut Butter, until smooth and pourable. Do not heat too much.
Let the mixture cool for a few minutes
Pour over the keto cereal in the mixing bowl. Stir to combine well. Let cool for a few minutes more.
Stir in ⅔ of the chocolate chips.
Press the mixture into the bottom of a well greased 9×9 baking dish. Use a piece of parchment paper to press the mixture down to keep it from sticking to your hands. Add the remaining chocolate chips to the top of the mixture. Chill for at least two hours before slicing and serving.
Using ChocZero Chocolate Chips
We use ChocZero’s products every chance we get because, honestly, we are obsessed with everything they release.
Their keto friendly chocolates taste just like traditional chocolate! Maybe even better. And their keto syrups seem to find their way on top of almost everything we make because they just add an amazing amount of flavor to everything.
Of course, any keto friendly chocolate chips will work for this keto peanut butter Rice Krispie treat recipe, but we highly recommend ChocZero’s milk chocolate chocolate chips. ChocZero also has white chocolate and dark chocolate chocolate chips if those are your thing.
If you shop ChocZero’s website, don’t forget to use our code, “buttertogetherkitchen” at checkout! It will save you 10% off your entire purchase. This includes chocolate chips, chocolate squares, barks, truffles, spreads, syrups and more! All 100% keto friendly, of course.
Can I Make This Without Peanut Butter?
Absolutely! If peanut butter isn’t your thing, you can always use almond butter, sunflower seed butter, or whatever your favorite butter may be.
The main thing is that you want a butter that is creamy and a little oily or drippy (think Smucker’s Natural Peanut Butter that you have to stir when you first open).
How To Store Keto Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats
These keto peanut butter Rice Krispie treats can be stored on the counter at room temperature, but they will last much longer -and better maintain their taste and texture- if stored in the fridge, covered.
Covered in the fridge, these keto peanut butter Rice Krispie treats will last up to two weeks, but we doubt they’ll survive that long (they’re just too good).
