These 5-Ingredient Vegan Rice Krispie Treats Are Delicious and Ready in 15 Minutes

Growing up, my mom made Rice Krispie treats on the regular. That melt-in-your-mouth, ooey-gooey combo of cereal and marshmallows was basically a kid's dream come true—not to mention the perfect option to jazz up with food coloring and festive sprinkles for literally any holiday, ever. Unfortunately, it's been a while since I've had the staple: It isn't exactly the most vegan-friendly—or even healthy—dessert in existence. That is unless you switch things up a bit.

Normally, the treat is made with a whole lot of butter, the aforementioned crispy cereal, and plenty of marshmallows—which are not only a no-go for vegans since they contain gelatin, but also not great anyway since they have 29 grams of sugar per cup. (Eek!) But leave it to Caitlin Shoemaker of the vegan food blog From My Bowl to create an equally delicious mix using a wholesome combo that lets you revisit your childhood in the best way.

The simple 5-ingredient recipe results in treats that are still pure sticky goodness thanks to Medjool dates and almond butter, and on top of that, they're refined sugar-free. There's also an option to cover them with a layer of melted vegan chocolate to make them even more irresistible. (Are you drooling yet? Because I am.) In just 15 minutes with very minimal effort, they'll be ready to go—and you'll be well on your way to dessert-fueled bliss.
