No-Bake Crisp Rice Cereal Treats by Trader Joes (Vegan-Friendly)
10 mins (prep 10)

This is printed on the side panel of a box of Trader Joe's brand Crisp Rice Cereal (their version of Kellog's Rice Krispies.) Substitute another seed or nut butter of your choice. Although optional, I threw in a scant 1/4 cup of chips: dark chocolate, butterscotch and peanut butter chips and decorated the top with Christmas sprinkles. Note: If you are making this strictly vegan, remember that not all baking chips are dairy-free. For vegan and/or non-chocolate options, 'Sunspire' is a good brand. If you wish dried fruit such as coconut, raisins or cranberries can be added. Toasted nuts and seeds are another delicious addition, too. The amount of brown sugar and agave was cut in half and I would entertain the idea of reducing the sugar even further...? Finally, the recipe itself was cut in half and I used an 8-inch Pyrex square baking dish to prep the treats.
