Well hello friends!
How do you like our new blog header? Kind of awesome, right?
We’re changing it up a bit at EverythingButThe.com. Now that our company, Cherryvale Farms, is rockin’ and rollin’, the blog will now feature more posts about our company and all the amazing things we’re doing…
…Like moving into a new warehouse!
…And exhibiting at the Natural Products EXPO West!
Many awesome things are happening for us, so from now on, there will be plenty of updates / stories / anecdotes / rants about all things Cherryvale Farms related, as well as recipes sprinkled in for good measure.
Like today’s awesome recipe: Vegan Peanut Butter Brown Rice Crispie Treats
These things are awesome. Made with organic puffed rice, they have a lot more fiber than traditional Rice Krispies cereal. They also contain brown rice syrup, which is a great, lower-sugar alternative to granulated sugar. A little vegan margarine and vanilla makes these toasty and yummy and maintains the rice crispie treat texture we all remember from childhood.
Total awesomeness. Recipe after the jump!
(and by the way, don’t you love our vintage tea towel? it’s like 40 years old and in pristine condition….we now have a whole collection of them so be on the lookout as they pop-up in more photos!)
I’m going to start off by saying this recipe is incredibly yummy. And sticky. And sweet. And all the things a dessert should be.
You know what thing that it also is that you’d never guess? It’s vegan!
100% vegan deliciousness. You could serve this dessert to the most hardcore meat / dairy / egg eater in the world and they’d be like “Wow, that’s delicious!”. And they’d have no idea it’s vegan.
It’s also surprisingly easy to make. The hard part is not eating the entire plate the moment it comes out of the oven.
Are you wondering why the above photo is just a sliver of this tray of S’mores? Welll…that may or may not be because the rest of the tray has been eaten already.
One spoonful at a time.
Over an hours period of time.
Possibly by me, or possibly by someone else that lives with me. I won’t name names but somebody’s in trouble.
So go buy some rice marshmallow creme (it comes in a nice little container, lasts forever in the pantry and tastes just like normal marshmallow creme) and go to town. But don’t eat the whole tray. Leave a sliver….for someone, anyone really…or just so you can capture a photo of your culinary brilliance.
By the way, I was shocked this recipe didn’t include actual graham crackers somewhere but the dough you prepare tastes exactly like them…it’s kind of amazing.
Jump for joy recipe after the jump.
