Coconut rice crispy treats

 

Here is a healthier option for the popular crunchy and crispy treat! Did you know marshmallows have gelatin in them?! Gelatin is made from collagen obtained from various animal body parts. YIKES!! So, we used vegan marshmallows (Trader Joe’s, and whole foods carry these!).
