This Week’s Recipe: Vegan Coconut Crispy Treats

sweetsara2007yumWhen I saw this recipe, I had to share. According to the creator, Aja T. Marsh, these vegan coconut crispy treats are “dangerously easy to make.” My kind of recipe!

Here’s what you need:

3 cups puffed brown rice cereal
2-3 tablespoons virgin coconut oil (could substitute vegan margarine or organic canola oil)
1 7.5 oz. package Sweet and Sara toasted coconut vegan marshmallows (use plain if you prefer)
1/4 cup shredded coconut (unsweetened), optional

Here’s what you need to do:

Place the cereal in a large bowl.

In a small pot, gently heat the oil and the marshmallows until they melt. Pour into the bowl with the cereal, add the coconut, and gently mix with a spatula until well combined.

In a 9×9 baking pan lined with parchment, pour in the crispy mixture, and press gently to even out. Allow to cool on the counter for 1-2 hours, if you can stand to wait. Cut into squares or other desired shapes and sizes, and enjoy.

Dip in or pour on some melted chocolate if you are feeling really crazy!

I know what I’m doing this weekend. I can’t wait to try these yummy treats, can you?
