Sticky Crispy Squares

I have been craving rice crispie mars bar squares all week, but I wanted to think of a way to make them without the massive sugar kick….. this is what I came up with. They’re slightly chewy but hold a little crunch and very, very moreish. The best guilt free treat for a mid afternoon break.

Makes 16



  • 200g medjool dates, soaked
  • 100g sugar free rice crispies (I use Sainsburys organic)
  • 100g sugar free cornflakes (I use Sainsburys organic)
  • 4tbsp maple syrup
  • 3tbsp almond butter (available in most supermarkets)
  • 170g dark chocolate (my favourite is Green and blacks 70%


  1. Pour boiling water over the dates and leave to soak.
  2. Line a brownie tin with parchment.
  3. Mix the cornflakes and crispies in a large bowl.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the nut butter, maple syrup and drained, mashed dates. Stir and crush with a fork until a pretty smooth consistency.
  5. Add to the crispy mix, stir well and press into the tin. Press down hard to stick them together.
  6. Pop in the fridge while you melt your chocolate.
  7. Spread the melted chocolate over the crispy mix and return to fridge for a few hours before cutting into squares. Enjoy.
