cookies-n-creme rice crispy treats

August 6, 2012

Well, I  de. clare.  

Is it time we really put a healthy label on a seemingly indulgent rice crispy treat?  Yes, I believe it is.  

Both gluten-free and dairy-free (and made with natural marshmallows), I've never felt so good about eating an entire tray of them.   That's not entirely true, but...ya know.  I was mighty close.  

I've always been a big fan of getting a little funky-town with the rice crispies as evidenced here and here, but I fell in deep, deep in love with this cookies-n-creme idea back when my homegirl, Julie, made these.  She's a genius I tell you.  

This particular party went down when Sunday morning rolled around and my mind was on oreos instead of waffles, or pancakes, or normal Sunday-morning-breakfast options.  I flew to my kitchen all willy-nilly and whipped up this version.  

I think it's about time you found yourself with one of these in your leopard-printed-paws.

And all the fine people in all God's land said, yaay-yus ma'am.

Cookies-n-Creme Rice Crispy Treats

gluten-free, dairy-free

7 oz. gluten-free marshmallows (I like Elyon Marshmallows)
4 cups brown rice cereal
3 tablespoons Earth Balance vegan buttery stick
8 oz. gluten-free "oreos", crushed (using this homemade version or I like Kinnitoos Chocolate Sandwich Cremes)
  1. Grease an 8×8″ pan using vegetable oil; Set aside.
  2. Melt Earth Balance in a large pot then dd in the bag of marshmallows and stir until melted.   
  3. Remove from heat and fold in the rice cereal and oreos.
  4. Pour into the prepared pan and press the mixture firmly until it’s evenly spread.
  5. Let cool completely before cutting into squares.

has anyone ever told you that you are a genius? because you are and it's a shame if they haven't. also, i fully prescribe to "if it's organic or all-natural it is healthy" belief. so yes, these are healthy, even if you eat the whole pan. which i will. mark my words.
