So ... you live with a food restriction and can't have some traditional treats.
Problem? Not always!
Sometimes trying to approximate a treat that's off-the-table for us brings us something even better. These Crispy Rice Treats are a yummy example.
They have the sweet crunchiness of those other treats made with crisp rice cereal, but they are vegan and soy-free and loaded with creamy sunflower seed butter and chocolate goodness. An added bonus is that they take about 5 minutes to put together.
