View Full Version : Rice crispy treats

:D : :D
I remember them well. Do any of you have a recipe for them? They were so good but now I can't have them. Please help if you can to fill the void.

here's a link to a discussion on that challenge on another board

Exurb, that's an interesting thread there...they were coming up with some doozies! LOL!
Well, my immediate thought was sprouted/dehydrated buckwheat. It DOES have it's own flavor...I doubt anything can replace the actual flavor of crisped rice as it just has a unique flavor of it's own...but who knows?
I know sprouted/dehydrated buckwheat has a kinda light crunch to them but it's still not the exact same.
But I was thinking those mixed with: agave, vanilla and maybe a little coconut oil and a dash or two of sea salt.
Press into a pan and allow to sit (or chill?)

as in "would crunchy mung bean sprouts be totally disgusting?"....
But OMG Rawkinlocs, buckwheat sprouted and dehydrated, you're absolutely right. I had some purchased "raw chocolate" treats once that had sprouted and dehydrated buckwheat, and it was like those rice crispies in the SAD choc bar.
At first when I read blessed's thread I thought "Good Luck", but now I think it's totally possible. The buckwheat will have a more mild flavor too like a rice krisp.
Plus yum, coconut oil, when's the Rawkinlocs cookbook coming out?

But yeah, with something like the coconut oil and vanilla in there, I figure that would definitely mask the buckwheat flavor IF it is undesirable (some like the flavor of buckwheat). I made a torte out of Juliano's RAW book and it called for "buckwheaties" and that was so good...like you said, it was like having crisped rice in it.
So, I could definitely see it working...the "marshmallow cream" might need some experimenting, but as long as it's sweet and kinda sticky, shouldn't matter that much I guess.
As for the cookbook (or rather uncook book...maybe sooner than you think! ;)
