What child doesn’t love rice crispy treats? Ok, let’s be honest. What adult doesn’t love rice crispy treats? And now they are veganized and healthy.

Since the start of the new school year is around the corner, let’s learn a little history about sweets. As some would say, sweets were first fed to the gods in ancient Mesopotamia and ancient India. Dried fruit and honey were probably the first sweeteners used in most of the world, but the transporting of sugarcane around the world was vital to the development of dessert.

Europeans began to manufacture sugar in the Middle Ages, and more sweet desserts became available. Even then sugar was so expensive usually only the wealthy could indulge on special occasions. The first apple pie recipe was published in 1381. The earliest documentation of the term “cupcake” was in “Seventy-five Receipts for Pastry, Cakes, and Sweetmeats” in 1828.

The Industrial Revolution in Europe and later America caused desserts (and food in general) to be mass-produced, processed, preserved, canned, and packaged. Frozen foods, including desserts, became very popular starting in the 1920s when freezing emerged. 

Vegan Rice Crispy Treats. A perfect snack to tuck lovingly into a schoolbox for the first day of school. And… the perfect treat for mom and dad to snack on while the kids are at school.
