Peanut Butter Hemp Crispy Treats

These Peanut butter Hemp Crispy Treats honour a special type of nostalgia but are healthy, vegan and gluten free!

Happy February everyone! I am kicking it off with a healthy snack that is fun to eat, easy to make and won’t give you any of the guilt (who needs that) of indulging. Guilt around food has become a hot topic. I have always been honest with you guys saying I am no nutritionist but I do follow a bunch. Shame around food and what we put in and on our bodies has become the trend in 2021 and I for one am here for it.

Snacking is a must for me. I have shared with you about my alcoholism and giving up cigarettes, drugs and the like. Coffee has been on the chopping block once or twice but I pulled the trigger on that one. A girl has to have at least one vice (ok, maybe two) and for me snacks and coffee, well, suffice to say, they are staying.

LETS GET SNACKING

  1. These are so deliciously addictive. I made them today using regular Rice Krispies and smuckers natural creamy peanut butter. My very picky kids couldn’t stop eating them! Thanks for this wonderful recipe!

  2. Just wanted to mention that I checked all the ingredients and other than the puffed rice (which is medium), they are all low FODMAP foods. Very good news for folks on a low FODMAP diet. I’ll be making these for someone I love. Thank you.
