NUT FREE, DAIRY FREE, SEED FREE
When my kids were diagnosed with food allergies, we had to find alternate snacks that were nut free, dairy free, and seed free. These raspberry soy butter rice crispy treats fulfilled that void of the ever-present Rice Krispies Treats in the blue wrapper, but with a wonderful twist.
VALENTINE’S DAY TWIST
We’ve been making this recipe for years now without this tasty twist and it’s been a kid favorite. However, for Valentine’s Day, we wanted to add a “Valentiney” theme to this. We added raspberry powder to our usual rice crispy treats and it added a slight tanginess. Love!

Typical rice krispie treat recipes usually include marshmallows, butter, or peanut butter, but that doesn’t work for us. My kids are allergic to nuts, dairy, and seeds so we use soy (or soynut – same thing) butter to replace the peanut butter. Some people like to replace peanut butter with sunflower butter, but that’s a seed, so it’s not an option for us. Let me know if you try it, I’m pretty sure it would substitute nicely. We’ve been using this WowButter made from soybeans! It’s a favorite! It’s non-GMO and the oil does not separate.
Trying to lessen the amount of processed sugar we eat, this recipe uses Brown Rice Syrup as the sweetener and thickener. It works magically! We like Lundberg Sweet Dreams Organic Brown Rice Syrup.
- In a food processor, pulverize raspberries into a powder.
- Sift the seeds out with a mesh sieve. Throw away the seeds.
- Stir together rice syrup and wowbutter in pot over a low fire until melted.
- Turn off fire and add raspberry powder and rice krispies into the pot.
- Mix until coated.
- Pour mixture into a parchment paper lined 8x8 pan.
- Using your hand in a ziploc bag, flatten rice krispies mixture until compact.
- Place in freezer for 10 minutes.
- Take out and let sit on counter for 10 minutes before cutting into squares.
- Instead of squares, you could use a heart shaped cookie cutter to cut hearts out.
- The soy butter we use is Wowbutter. It can be substituted with sunflower seed butter or any nut butter.
- The raspberries can be left out for a regular rice crispy treats flavor.
