Vegan Rice Crispy Treats

Much thanks to Elise for sharing this great recipe!  I modified it just a little and encourage you to experiment too…

What you’ll need:

  • 6 oz package of organic puffed rice cereal (no sugar added, just rice)
  • 1 1/2 cups brown rice syrup
  • 3 tablespoons virgin coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 3/4 cup almond butter
  • 1 cup  raisins
  • 1 cup  grain sweetened dark chocolate chips

Heat the butter, oil and syrup over high heat until liquefied.  Stir until well blended.

In large mixing bowl, add alternate amounts of puffed rice and syrup and stir well.  Once the rice and syrup are well blended,  stir in raisins.  Next add the chocolate chips (if still hot, the chips will melt- if you don’t want that wait to cool before adding).

Press the mixture in a large casserole dish and let cool.  If you’re in a hurry, place pan in freezer for  30 minutes.  Cut into small squares using large knife or pizza cutter.   Let us know what you plan to add to your treats!
