These Vegan Cocoa Rice Crispies will make you feel like a kid again.
Ingredients
  • 3 cups brown rice crisp cereal
  • ½ cup oat bran or quick oats
  • ⅓ cup date paste (~6 Medjool dates, pitted and blended in a food processor until they form a paste)
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • ⅓ cup almond milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, combine cereal and oat bran. Set aside.
  2. In a saucepan over medium-low heat, combine all remaining ingredients except chocolate chips. Stir until mixture is well-combined and begins to bubble (be careful not to burn it!!).
  3. Remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips.
  4. Pour mixture into the large bowl with the cereal and oat bran. Stir until well-combined (you may have to use your hands to fully integrate the "sauce" into the cereal).
  5. Scoop heaping tablespoons of the mixture and form into balls (wetting your fingers will make it easier to handle the mixture).
  6. Store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 5 days. (they are still edible after 5 days, but they will start to lose their crispiness).
