Rice Krispie Treats [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Kid-Friendly Vegan


16 squares


  • 1⁄2 cup macadamia nut butter
  • 1⁄2 cup brown rice syrup
  • 3 tbsp unrefined sugar (can reduce or omit, to taste)
  • 1⁄4 tsp sea salt
  • 1⁄4 tsp agar powder
  • 1 – 1 1⁄2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 4 cups natural brown rice crisp cereal


  1. Line an 8×8-in (20×20-cm) pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a large saucepan on low-medium heat, combine macadamia butter, syrup, sugar, salt, agar powder, and vanilla.
  3. Stir continually as mixture heats until agar powder is fully dissolved (reduce heat if mixture starts bubbling).
  4. Remove from heat and stir in cereal, making sure to fully incorporate with nut butter mixture.
  5. Transfer mixture to pan and press in evenly (use an edge of parchment paper to press without sticking).
  6. Refrigerate to cool completely, then cut into squares.

The internet is great for people in the lower 48. Shipping to Alaska is expensive or often unavailable. I'm crafty with recipes but I'm always frustrated by "exotic" ingredients.

There's this thing called the internet, where you can easily order everything. :-) Or just replace it with something similar - another nut butter, another sirup, and I am sure you'll find something instead of agar agar in the supermarket, corn starch might even do the trick.

These look and sound great. I don't like brown rice syrup that much so I would us agave syrup. I love macadamia nut butter but wish it wasn't so expensive.
