Just in time for Halloween, rice krispy treats! I used the recipe from the cookbook, Simple Treats by Ellen Abraham, which I received from the publisher for review.
The brown rice krispy treats are a natural food version of the classic treat, using a concoction of various syrups to replace the usual marshmallows. I also added a topping of raisins and shredded coconut.
It’s been many moons since I’ve last eaten a rice krispy treat, but I thought these were good. They tasted a bit on the healthy side and aren’t super sweet. I haven’t tried making any with vegan marshmallows so I can’t compare the two.
The rest of the cookbook covers everything from muffins and breads to cookies and cakes to cremes, frostings and glazes, all dairy-free and wheat-free (but not gluten-free, as some recipes call for barley flour).
Share a square of rice krispy treats with a little friend today. To facilitate the sharing, I’m giving away a copy of Simple Treats. For a chance in a different giveaway, click on the above Luscious Vegan Desserts button to enter at the publisher’s website, Book Publishing Company.
