This wholesome take on Rice Krispies Treats gets sweetness from coconut nectar, chewy gooeyness from almond butter, and a host of goodness from hemp seeds, cacao nibs, and superfood chocolate. A gluten-free, vegan, and refined sugar-free recipe that still tastes like a treat.
Aloha chocolate can be ordered or procured in select shops in New York (and more to come, I'm told). Otherwise, give these a go with another raw and/or naturally sweetened chocolate, or make the O.G. Hippie Crispies with regular old bittersweet chocolate.
If you are very sensitive to gluten, make sure to get crisp rice cereal that is certified gluten-free; some cereals contain barley malt.
Feel free to double the recipe and form the squares in an 8 or 9" square pan, which is advisable since these disappear quickly.
These treats are crispest the day they are made, but will keep refrigerated for up to a few days.
