OHHHHH, HI! Sooooooo I don't know about you but it has been YEARS since I made rice crispy treats. Y-E-A-R-S! I used to make them frequently with lots of butter and even put a buttery layer over the top. I was pretty addicted I think haha! So when I changed my diet about 3 years ago, I eliminated most of the ingredients in regular rice crispy treats. There was no more pans of buttery sweets for me. I actually didn't even think about them or want them until recently. My sister, Heather, made me a veganized pan of them and I was brought back to WHY I love this treat so much. What's better than crispiness, chewiness and buttery sweetness?? NOT MUCH!
You know what's even greater about these? They contain no animal products. The majority of mashmallows contain gelatin, which is ground up animal bones. Mmmmm no thanks! They also are made with cows milk butter. If you don't know the cruelty and dangers in the dairy industry I highly suggest you look up Dairy Is Scary on YouTube.
THESE babies use soy free vegan butter with vegan marshmallows, all of which are non gmo, gluten free and use NO corn syrup! I have not found a vegan brand of mashmallows that are soy free but I'm on the look out!
While these are by no means a health food and should be for limited special occasions, they are simple and delicious!! My son also drizzled some organic vegan chocolate across the top and we all dug in!
This recipe makes a LARGE batch. This makes a big 9 x 13 pan size THICK squares. If you don't want huge squares and don't have many people eating them, half this recipe!
HAPPY RECIPE SEARCHING!
Here you will find recipes either created by me or from ones I have found and changed up to my liking. I try to use ingredients that are usually 95% organic (lessen that toxic load!), very little unrefined sugars used and the majority of these are GLUTEN FREE. We eat legumes, grains, nuts, seeds, grass fed organic meats, pasture raised eggs, very small amounts of organic dairy, and lots of fruits and veggies! You can always change up the recipes to fit your lifestyle or taste buds! Thanks for supporting me and my art through food!
