Tahini Crispy Brown Rice Treats with Dark Chocolate Ganache
Smooth, flavorful tahini is tempered by maple syrup in these crunchy bars. The dark chocolate ganache adds a fudge-like layer to the top. These are perfect to bring to a potluck, give as a gift, or just keep all to yourself. They never last long!
  1. Line an 8×8 baking dish with foil or parchment. [Note: We like thicker crispy treats but if you like thinner ones you can definitely use a larger baking pan.]
  2. Heat tahini, coconut oil, honey/syrup, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon over low heat until smooth and liquid, about 5 minutes. Stir continuously and don’t let the mixture come to a simmer or it can burn.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, pour the tahini mixture over the crisped rice and gently stir to coat. Stir in the coconut.
  4. Gently pour mixture into prepared baking dish, pressing lightly to ensure that you get the mixture into all corners and wind up with a smooth, even top.
  5. Place pan in freezer until cooled and set, about 20 minutes. During this time, prepare ganache.
  6. To make ganache: Combine almond milk and chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat and stir until smooth.
  7. Store in the fridge until you slice and serve.
