Rice crispy treats were one of my absolute favorite things to make when I was little, so I decided to create a healthy recipe for these delicious treats.
They are so simple & easy to make and are perfect to keep for little healthy treats. Kids love them, adults love them, everyone loves them!
This recipe is naturally gluten-free as well as refined sugar-free, dairy-free, gulit-free and vegan.
But… eat with caution: They are highly addictive. You’ve been warned!
