Healthy Rice Crispy Treat Recipe (Vegan)

This homemade Rice Crispy Treat Recipe is an all-around winner with my kids, their friends AND me! I eat these for dessert, snack time and anytime, really. The best part is they are packed with protein and healthy fats to offset the natural sugars. This recipe is from my new best-selling book, Simple Green Meals.

Vegan Rice Crispy Treat Recipe with a healthy twist

If your kids are begging for a snack the second they walk in the door, make a quick batch of these and everyone wins! It can be hard to find brown rice syrup lately, so feel free to swap for raw honey (that’s SUPER thick— this is important to get it to hold together). You can also use Parker’s Maple Butter, which has become my new obsession!

 

Why this rice crispy treat recipe is a true winner

  1. NO CORN SYRUP: Brown Rice Syrup is a better choice than corn syrup, which is often found in Rice Crispy Treat recipes.  Corn syrup is a common food sensitivity— and one that my son has. So I want to avoid it as much as I can and still let them eat fun foods. (You can also swap with Maple Butter as your sweetener of choice and they hold together pretty well.)
  2. PROTEIN PUNCH: Almond butter makes the bars creamy and is packed with protein and healthy fats. This will help curb your appetite and boost your energy levels. No empty calories in this treat!
  3. NO BAKING! Yep, no baking necessary with rice crispy treat recipes! I think this is one of the reasons they are so popular! Just warm ingredients on the stovetop,  mix together and allow to sit. #easypeasy

Description

There’s a restaurant in Tampa called Fresh Kitchen that rawks my world! They have amazing veggie bowls, and right before the register where you pay, they dangle almond butter treats in front of your face. I can never say no‚ and I never regret buying them either. They are amazing! This is my own version of those bars, and I think they turned out pretty dang good.

    I’d like to make green rice krispy treats for a St. Patty’s party. Where would I add the green food coloring?

    Hey Jennifer,

    That sounds so fun! If you are wanting to add some natural green food coloring to this recipe you can totally try spirulina or spinach powder. We have not used this with this recipe before so you will have to mess around with it to see how much to add.

    Hope that helps!
