Vegan Cocoa Rice Crispy Treats – Gluten-Free and Organic Too!

Vegan Cocoa Rice Crispy Treats - Gluten-Free and Organic Too
Share some yum!

We are enjoying a pan of these vegan rice krispy treats as I type this – these are so good! Who doesn’t love Rice Krispies treats? But the original Rice Krispie bars are neither vegetarian (let alone vegan), nor organic (nor very good for you). This version is all of those things! And very easy to make, too! To make them be not cocoa, but plain, just substitute the plain crispy rice cereal of your choice.

Links in the ingredients list are to the product on Amazon, in case it’s not readily available in your area.

Vegan Cocoa Rice Crispy Treats

1 cup Lundberg Organic Brown Rice Syrup
3/4 cup vegan sugar
1 Tablespoon vegan margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 box gluten-free vegan cocoa rice crisp cereal

(If you’re wondering what would make sugar be not vegetarian or vegan, read here.)

Use a pot either big enough to contain all of the ingredients (including the cereal), or have the cereal ready in a big bowl.

Grease a 9×13 baking pan and set aside.

Heat rice syrup over medium heat and stir in sugar. As syrup starts to bubble (keep it at a low boil, don’t let it come to a big boil) stir in the margarine and vanilla. Let boil at a low boil for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove the syrup from the heat, and dump the cereal into the pot, or pour the syrup over the cereal, in a big bowl.

Mix quickly, but thoroughly, and press the mixture into the greased 9×13 pan. Let cool for about an hour (if you can!), and cut into squares, and enjoy!
