Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Rice Crispy Treats are truly a match made in flavor heaven! They are not only easy to make but also so kid and picky eater friendly. 

I myself have always been a true Rice Crispy Treat fan. I remember making them as a kid from scratch. They are so much better than those boxed versions. 

Now these don’t taste quite like my childhood memories but the peanut butter chocolate twist is a fun way to enjoy this tasty classic. 

These treats are:

Sweet

Crunchy 

Decadent

Chocolatey Peanutbuttery

Ingredient Notes:

  • Crispy Rice Cereal – If you want to keep these vegan the traditional Rice Crispy brand is not. I used Nature’s Path and they work well. 
  • Peanut Butter – Use the unsweetened and unsalted kind, the ingredients should only say peanuts. Just make sure to give it a good stir before use. 
  • Maple Syrup – Pure maple syrup, not the breakfast kind. 
  • Vanilla – Splurge on a good vanilla it should smell like heaven not alcohol. 
  • Vegan Chocolate Chips – There are a few brands you could go with I used Enjoy Life.

  • Grease or line a 9X9 pan with parchment paper.
  • Now press your mixture into your pan really well. You will want to use either a spatula or your hands to really press the mixture into your pan.
  • Now melt your chocolate chips in the microwave in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second intervals, stirring in between intervals until melted.

Notes

*I used Nature's Path Crispy Rice Cereal to ensure these are vegan. Kellogg's Rice Krispies use an animal derived vitamin and are not vegan.
*Make sure you press them well into the pan, this helps the treats to stay together.
