Cinnamon Spice Crispy Treats

by jenny sansouci on December 14, 2011

These Cinnamon Spice Crispy Treats are a riff on the Crispy Treats from Alicia Silverstone’s Kind Diet, with a little added holiday spice!

Cinnamon makes any dish feel like the holidays. Plus, it’s super healthy. It can help lower your blood sugar, triglycerides and cholesterol, so let’s throw this magical spice into everything we eat, shall we!? Read more here on cinnamon + health.

These crispy treats have a little cinnamon, a little nutmeg, a little ginger….perfect for leaving out for Santa. 🙂


  • 1 box brown rice crispy cereal (Erewhon makes my favorite)
  • 1 3/4 cups brown rice syrup
  • 3/4 cup almond butter
  • 1 pinch coarse sea salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ginger

Pour cereal into a large bowl.

Melt brown rice syrup in a pot on the stove on low heat, until liquid. Add almond butter and all spices and mix well.

Pour mixture over the cereal and mix well with a wooden spoon.

Put the mixture into a 9×13 baking dish. Wet wooden spoon and press mixture evenly into the dish. Sprinkle more cinnamon on top, if you want to!

Let cool for 1 hour, cut into bars.


Happy Holiday Treat-Making!

Hi, i love thie recipe and would love to make it for my son but he is allergic to nuts. Do you think i could substitute the almond butter for normal butter? cheers Alyssa

Hi, you can’t replace the almond butter with regular butter, but you could try with a seed butter if he’s not allergic to seeds – maybe pumpkin seed butter? Or if he’s not allergic to coconuts, you could try coconut butter! Good luck!

I just made these to surprise my three year old after preschool and I can hardly keep myself from eating them warm. So good. I trimmed ingredients so I could fit in an 8×8 pan. I bet you could add unsweetened cocoa powder for chocolate treats! Anybody try this yet?
