Gluten Free Vegan Rice Crispy Treats

The Lil Chef and  I were supposed to make this recipe months and months ago. I have no idea why we never got around to it but I'm so glad we waited, timing is everything!
I used a combination of recipes like I usually do. We have had a couple of boxes of Malt O Meal gluten free Crispy Rice from the food pantry sitting around and we bought a bag of Dandies Marshmallows months ago because The Lil Chef really likes marshmallows. My Mommy brain was thinking Rice Crispy Treats, her brain was thinking to eat the whole bag. Enough rambling and on to the good stuff!!!

Dandies Recipe:
1 10 oz bag of Dandies Marshmallows
5 cups Crisp Rice Cereal
2 Tbsp of Margarine
2 Tbsp of Coconut Oil

Malt O Meal Recipe:
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 10 oz package marshmallows or 4 cups miniature marshmallows)
1 tsp vanilla
6 1/2 cups Crispy Rice Cereal

My Recipe:
2 Tbsp of Smart Balance
2 Tbsp of Coconut Oil
5 cups of Malt O Meal Crisp Rice Cereal
1 10 oz bag of Dandies Marshmallows
1 tsp vanilla
pinch of kosher salt

I used the stovetop instructions. I melted the Smart Balance and Coconut oil together, added the marshmallows, took it off the heat, added the vanilla, stirred in the crisp rice. The Lil Chef buttered the cookie sheet with smart balance and pressed out the mixture. We sprinkled the kosher salt on top of the RCTs. The next time we will add the salt into the marshmallow mixture at the same time that we add the vanilla. I was able to squeeze out 24 thin squares, you don't have to do that. Make your squares as thick as you like. 

I added a slideshow of the process below.

Hough Bakery - butter cookies

Hough Bakery By Gail Greenberg&Diane Rolfe Hough Bakery was an integral part of me and my family's lives, (most people in Cleveland for that matter) I was heartbroken when they closed. I have always remembered the cookies and doughnuts from this magical bakery. Their products were like nothing I had ever had before (and it was extra magical because I was so little/young) I have been searching for about 30 years for something similar - no luck... but, thank goodness there are a few recipes floating around the internet! Unfortunately even with Archie's being open, my food afflictions will not allow me to enjoy those old time favorites. Luckily, converting is what I do and that's what this site is about so I will switch some things around and see how it turns out! The recipe below is just ONE of my all time favorites, please enjoy! Memories of a signature blue-and-white, string-tied cake box filled with a streusel coffee cake, hot cross buns, sticky pecan rolls, coconut cho…
