Vegan Edibles: Cannabis Infused Rice Crispy Treats (gluten free)

While trying to find a baller recipe to make for my friends and family this Christmas, I opened up my copy of Wake + Bake and got a chance to remember how fun it was to write that book.

I’m not trying to toot my own horn or anything [but beep beep!], I LLOLed at the excerpt for these Ripped Crispies:

Carl Sagan may be one of the smartest guys to say that marijuana prohibition is stupid (page 64). The famous astronomer noted that one time, he got high, took a shower with his wife, played with some bubbles… and then wrote 11 prolific essays in about an hour. Some of those essays aided in the popularization of science and understanding the systems that create poverty.

So whip up a batch of these easy vegan Ripped Crispies during a time of classic writer’s block. Unlock the floodgates of creativity and allow the river of inspiration to wash over your stifled brain. But first, get in the shower and just be high in the shower. It’s what Carl Sagan would do.

Right? Don’t you just love picturing a genius astronomer in the shower playing with bubbles? No? Just me?

Oh well. Back to the cannabis rice crispy thing then…

Easy Vegan + Gluten Free Cannabis Infused Rice Crispy Treats

vegan cannabis rice crispy treatThis weekend, my fam jam is coming into town to celebrate the holiday and I was debating over whether to make these, almond laced cookies, or those amazing paleo pot brownies. I’ve made these 984165 times but every time I forget how easy and delicious they are until I do it again.

It’s kind of like when you write a book, and then two years goes by, and you forget every single word inside of it. And then when you read that book again, it doesn’t even feel like you did it and you can actually enjoy it instead of being mortified by typos, design glitches and weird personal stories that you decided to share with a bunch of complete strangers.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that everyone should write a book, put it down and come back to it and fully appreciate it later. Or wait… no… my point was that these cannabis infused rice crispy treats are delightful!

Even if you’re not a vegan, you will love them. If you’re not a vegan and you’d like to use honey instead of brown rice syrup, you can do that, but they don’t hold together as well. You’ll have to make sure they stay in the fridge right up until you’re ready to eat them and use a little more coconut oil or nut butter (idk… experiment!).

IMHO they’re a lot less messy than working with the traditional marshmallow goo that you use as a base for regular rice crispy treats, but now that I just said that, I kinda want to infuse some of those too.

ALSO… Since you guys asked for it, I’m starting to incorporate a shopping list above each recipe so you’ll have a visual guide for what you need on hand.

    2 questions….
    (1) Why do you prefer sunflower lecithin over soy?

    (2) If I eat a sativa edible or an indica edible will I feel the strain effects as in inhaling, or does the body not process it that way.

    Also, here is something you’ll find interesting. I got t his from Green Flower Video Stream last night

    Looks like we have to un-learn what we already learned…

    Just made my second batch of these. They taste great! I used old fashioned peanut butter and added a sprinkling of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips on top before pressing down. I cut theme into portions, wrap in wax paper and put them in a freezer bag. They freeze well and when I want one I juts take one out and let it set on the counter for half an hour.

      For sure… You can use honey if you’re not vegan, but it does give it a tottaly different flavor and is a little less sticky. You can add some extra coconut oil and put them in the freezer before serving so they stick together. Let me know how it goes! 🙂

    How many treats at what size does this make? Trying to figure out how many I can get out of a pan.

    can we use cannabutter instead? Also, can you bake with marijuana oil/extract? I am a new user and no-one seems to have the answer to this.
