These crunchy vegan peanut butter rice krispie treats are quick and easy and made with 4 simple ingredients. Insanely delicious!
So who doesn’t love a good dose of rice krispie treats! I know they’re usually made with marshmallows, which quite honestly I’d be down for.
I’m not one of those people who’s all like snubbing their noses at marshmallows or anything, I’d be super keen for it. But there is not a trace of a vegan marshmallow that I have been able to find in these parts.
But no matter. What I bring to you today is just as good: vegan peanut butter rice krispie treats.
How To Make Vegan Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats
Peanut butter and golden syrup (or brown rice syrup as you prefer) are melted together to form a sticky delicious sauce that binds those little krispies together and then vegan chocolate is melted for the topping!
The result is a sweet and crunchy square of peanut butter rice krispie deliciousness that is made all the better for being topped with a thick layer of chocolate.
And if you’re not already completely sold on this, maybe the fact that it’s only 4-ingredients and only takes around 20 minutes to throw together will be the thing to catapult you into action and have you heading straight to the kitchen to make these right away.
And they are super kid friendly too. So if you have kiddies around, they will be super pleased.
My niece is rather an anomaly, she popped around (with my sister of course, I don’t think 6 year olds are generally popping around places all on their own), the other day and I had a batch of these on the go. I excitedly offered her one saying ‘these are great for kids!’ and she proceeded to swiftly turn me down. She doesn’t like chocolate, she tells me. Well blow me over with a feather. I didn’t know it was possible to not like chocolate. But you live and learn.
Storing and Freezing
Keep them covered in the fridge where they will easily stay fresh for a few days. Though I seriously doubt they will last that long. These disappear quickly.
They are also freezer friendly for up to 3 months!

- Spoon this out into your parchment lined dish and smooth down as best you can. Place into the fridge to set.
- When it has set, prepare your chocolate topping. Break up the chocolate and place into a microwave safe bowl. Heat in 30 second intervals bringing out to stir every 30 seconds until the chocolate is completely melted. Spoon this out on top of the rice krispie base and spread it out evenly.
- Return to the fridge to set. When set, lift the entire thing out with the parchment paper and cut into squares. Enjoy!
