Vegan Rice Crispy Treats

Hey!

Everyone has their own Rice Crispy Treats recipe and to be honest there is a pretty standard right way to make them! So today I bring you my version of Rice Crispy Treats, that is both vegan and gluten-free and yes maybe a little boring and run of the mill but I love it! They are such an easy dessert to prepare and conquer even the toughest sweet tooth. I have been experimenting with vegan marshmallows and I have found a brand I absolutely love, Dandies! I found mine at Whole Foods, but you can buy them online as well.

Now let’s get started because in about 30 minutes you will have Rice Crispy Treats to eat!!

INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a large microwave safe bowl, pour in your vegan marshmallows and coconut oil and place in the microwave until the mixture turns into marshmallow goo. I microwave mine in 30 second intervals until I get the right consistency, about 2 minutes usually.
  2. Take your bowl out of the microwave and pour in your vanilla extract. Mix everything together with a spatula until all your ingredients are well combined.
  3. Slowly add in your cereal to the mixture. I usually do about a cup of cereal at a time since it can get really difficult to mix. Mix until your marshmallow has coated each piece of cereal, I like to have my rice crispy treats to not be too even, I like the bits of marshmallow! But, mix yours however you prefer!
  4. OPTIONAL: Place about a teaspoon of coconut oil onto a paper towel and spread all over the inside of your dish. This will keep the rice crispy treats from sticking.
  5. Pour your mixture into your dish and using slightly damp or oiled hands press firmly until the mixture is evenly spread out and dense.
  6. Allow your treats to cool or place them in the refrigerator for speedier results! I like to cool mine for at least 20-30 minutes.
  7. Cut your rice crispy treats into whatever shape you desire and enjoy!

Servings: Makes 6-8 servings
Prep&Cooling Time: 10 minutes for prep, 20-50 minutes for cooling

Product I love: Living Raw Truffles

I have a major, major, MAJOR sweet tooth. I love eating cookie dough, or baking cakes and having a bowl of ice-cream after dinner. But, I started to cut back on all sugar in January 2016 because I had some health problems I was dealing with. Now I have sort of worked treats back in but I wanted to eat treats that were a little more health conscious. So, one day I was cruising the aisles of Whole Foods when I stumbled upon the raw foods dessert and snack section. As a vegan I was pretty intrigued.. I also had low expectations for raw treats satisfying my sweet tooth so I wanted to try a few. I picked up the Living Raw Hippie Hemp Truffles and man, I am hooked. They are so delicious, chocolate and smooth. The first night I had one I thought okay I will eat all of these (there are three in the bag) but, i ended up only needing one to satisfy my cravings… ONE!

I have tried only one other flavor (the darkest cacao) and those truffles are so rich and decadent you will definitely get your chocolate fix. This brand knows what they are doing and I am looking forward to seeing what else they make and trying the other flavors.

I would rate this truffles a 100/10 if I could but for the sake of having a limit, 10/10!!

I just bought some yesterday, and I am sure I will be purchasing many more. Such a wonderful treat!

If you are vegan, raw, or just looking for a healthier dessert, look no further. Living Raw knows how it should be done 🙂

I found Living Raw Truffles at Whole Foods but you can also purchase them on their website and also find out more about the brand.
