  • Wet ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup drippy tahini
  • cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil (or sub vegan butter)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Dry ingredients:
  • 3 ½ cups rice chex
  • 3/4 cup Enjoy Life chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil (or sub vegan butter)


  1. Line an 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper. Place a medium pot over low heat and add in tahini, coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth and well combined, about 1 minute. Alternatively, you can microwave this mixture for 45-60 seconds.

  2. Pour your wet ingredients over your chex cereal and stir until combined and cereal is completely coated. Pour into prepared pan, and use a spatula to flatten the top so it is even.
  3. Next make the chocolate topping by adding Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips and coconut oil to a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high in 30 second intervals, stirring in-between, until chocolate is completely melted. You can also melt the chocolate in a small saucepan over very low heat if you prefer.
  4. Pour melted chocolate over the bars and tilt your pan to spread out the chocolate evenly. Place pan in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or until bars are completely cool and chocolate is melted. Sprinkle bars with fancy sea salt, then cut into 16 bars. Enjoy!
  5. Bars should be kept covered in the fridge and will stay good for up to 1 week. Take bars out 10 minutes before you are ready to serve to ensure they aren't too crunchy! They soften up at room temp.

Recipe Notes

To store these tahini chex bars: keep them covered in the freezer for up to 2 weeks. Take bars out 5 minutes before you are ready to serve to ensure they aren’t too crunchy! They will soften up at room temp so storing in the freezer is best.
