Line a muffin tin with 12 silicone liners or line a 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, add in the oats and crispy rice cereal.
In a microwave-safe bowl or measuring cup, add in the peanut butter, coconut oil and agave syrup. Heat for 1 minute, stir and then heat for an additional 1 minutes. Add in the vanilla extract and whisk for 30 seconds. Let sit for 2-3 minutes.
Pour the peanut butter syrup into the oats and stir.
Gently fold in the chocolate chips and sprinkles.
Spoon the granola mixture evenly into the silicone liners or a baking dish. Using your fingers, rubber spatula or another silicone liner, press the mixture down as hard as you can.
Place the muffin tin in the refrigerator for at least an hour to chill.
Storage: Store in air-tight container in the fridge for up to 7 days.
Oats: I prefer this recipe using instant oats, but you can also use old-fashion oats if you prefer. I used a mixture of half instant and half old-fashion oats in this recipe as that is all I had on hand.
