Vegan Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Squares

Obviously these won't be quite the same as the originals. I find them very sugary, but then I don't have much of a sweet-tooth. They have a good consistency though and a great peanut butter taste. For those with dietary restrictions they are a great treat.


  1. Grease a tray about 9x13 inches. Also grease the spoon you'll use for mixing and something like a cake slice.
  2. Pour sugar and syrup into a large pan and bring to a boil.
  3. Remove from heat and add crunchy peanut butter mixing well.
  4. Add 6 cups of Rice Krispies cereal, mixing till coated.
  5. Using the spoon pour out the mix into the greased tray. With the cake slice press the mixture down.
  6. Allow to stand till squares firm up then cut into even squares. I usually use a large pizza cutter but any good knife should do.
  7. They should last about 2 weeks.

These are terrific! Easy to make and yummy yum yummy. I've made them about 6 or 8 times already. I've used regular and chocolate rice crispies, we're still deciding which is best. I use a 9" x 15" glass pan to pack them into to set. It turns out that 6 cups is exactly (close enough) one 284 gram box. AND if I slit the bag from inside the box, it's just the right size to line the pan - no wasted wax paper. Also using a rolling pizza cutter is great for chopping them up. Also a good excuse to "tidy up" the edges (cook's treat). Thanks! I really didn't want to use marshmellows or butter.

Oy! The sugar in the recipe! I can just see my dentist rubbing his hands together in anticipation of my paying for his next vacation! And yet, I still had to make this recipe. Israeli marshmallows don't even deserve to be called marshmallows, so I never get to make this. I was so please to see an alternative method to making these babies. The combination of sugar and syrup doesn't make the squares as firm as I would like them to be, but there were yummy all the same. My youngest Dornette went off to a week of camp this morning and I packed these in her knapsack. She had a taste last night and will be pleasantly surprised later today. Thanks for the recipe!
