INGREDIENTS IN VEGAN RICE KRISPIE TREATS
Vegan crispy rice cereal: There are so many brands of vegan crispy rice to choose from! I love using the sprouted brown rice crisps for a little extra nutrition and vitamins in my desserts!
Vegan marshmallows: Many marshmallows are made with gelatin, but there are plenty without! This is the glue that holds the whole vegan rice crispy treat.
Vegan butter: This brings an extra savory flavor to your treats! You can also use coconut oil or vegan margarine in a pinch.

ARE KELLOGG’S RICE KRISPIES VEGAN?
The original crispy rice cereal is, unfortunately, not vegan. It has Vitamin D3, and Kellogg says their version is not vegan.
However, many generic and other brands ARE vegan! Be sure to check the nutritional information.
My favorite brand is One Degree Organic Foods brown rice crisps. You can also make these with any vegan cereal you love!
WHAT CAN I USE INSTEAD OF MARSHMALLOWS FOR RICE KRISPIE TREATS?
Marshmallows, while tasty, aren’t vegetarian or vegan. Most are made with a combination of sugar, corn syrup, cornstarch, and gelatin.
The gelatin is what makes it a no-go for vegans, but without it, many marshmallows won’t hold their shape.
However, marshmallows made with agar agar are available in grocery stores nationwide and online!
