Tahini Vegan Rice Crispie Squares

Tahini Vegan Rice Crispie Squares


Made without butter and marshmallows, this healthier version of Rice Crispie Squares is packed full of protein, fibre, and natural sweetness, plus they are dairy, gluten and nut free.

In this recipe I used tahini (ground sesame seeds), brown rice puffs, raw seeds, brown rice syrup, pumpkin puree and raisins. Give them a try and let me know what you think in the comments section below. I hope you love them as much as my family does. I put them in the fridge last night to harden and as you can see someone has already taken a square for his snack today at work.

Hmm, seems there is some missing.
