If you have a hard time finding brown rice syrup, it’s also marketing under rice malt syrup. They’re the same thing. If you have never tried brown rice syrup before, you’re in for a treat. It’s a sweetener that’s not too sweet. It reminded me a lot of corn syrup, I want to attempt making butter tarts with brown rice syrup instead of corn syrup next December. I bet it would be delicious!

I was inspired for these Almond Butter Balls from these Three Ingredient No Bake Oatmeal Bars from A Big Man’s World. If you haven’t checked out Arman’s blog yet, you should. There are loads of good recipes there. I make his no bake oatmeal bars often as my son’s pre-school is a nut-free school and my son loves his granola bars.

I’m a big fan of almond butter, so I used that and you gotta have chocolate, so those have been added too (I love these dairy free chocolate chips). I have also added shredded coconut, dried fruit, and sprinkles.

How to make Almond Butter Balls

Randa’s Tip: This is the brown rice syrup I use. It’s amazing, I add it to a lot of dishes to make it sweet (it makes me think of butter tarts).

If you don’t have brown rice syrup on hand, honey or maple syrup will also work (honey has a similar texture to brown rice syrup).
