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.

Here’s an excerpt:

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

This 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. Let me know if you have any feedback or a hard time seeing it. I’m using amazon links, so anything you buy after clicking supports this here homespun recipe blog at no cost to you. Boost!

Wow. So this post is all over the place and I’m over half a bomber of organic hard cider in (not an affiliate link, just the best cider ever). And that’s my queue to stop and get to the recipe. Happy holidays everyone!

In the short time it took me to post all of this… I finished that bomber. The word cider now looks like it’s spelled incorrectly every time I see it and the keyboard letters feel like they’re getting smaller by the second. Let me know if you’ve got questions or if you make these tasty treats post your experience in the comments below.

  1. Corinne:

    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…



  2. 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.

    1. 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! 🙂

  3. 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.

  4. wow, you sure make weak treats and other eatables. less than 40 mg of THC per serving is weak. Oh ya this is an American site. Meaning that 5 % THC is a recreational dose and 10 MG is medical.

    1. Thanks for the comment, Steve. Yes, we are an American site, and our recipes start low for the safety of the new consumer. You can start with more potent base to increase your potency if you need it, I myself often add concentrates to my butter for potency because my husband is a medical patient and needs much more potent doses. Just for the record, most US state laws designate 10mg as a recreational dose, and medical doses are based on the user (just to be clear on facts for other readers).

      Also we’re planning an article soon to discuss genetic differences in enzyme efficiency, too. I personally get nothing from edibles regardless if I eat 40mg or 400mg, and there’s a biological, genetic reason why some edibles hit people harder than others. I hope you’ll come back for that one! 🙂

      Thanks again!

  6. Hello! I just made a batch for some vegan friends of mine and I just ate one. They taste pretty great!! Now I’m just hoping the 2 teaspoons of cannabis infused coconut oil was enough to do the job. I hope soooo!! If it isn’t, would it be alright to heat up the entire batch, add some more canna-oil, mix it up, and re-cool? Thanks for the recipe!! I’m sure I’ll figure out the right amount of canna-oil to use! Thanks.

  7. Can i replace the coconut oil with butter? Asking bc I already made canna butter.. Not sure if it will affect consistency? Thanks!

  8. This recipe looks fantastic! I never thought about a vegan rice crispy treat.
    I’d like to make these to cut into decent size squares for personal servings but i’m thinking just the 2 tablespoons of canna-oil won’t make them potent enough. I make canna-oil out of bud so it’s pretty potent & I currently use a full cup of oil for a batch of brownies which come out to about 250mg per brownie. What can I do to make these stronger without messing up the consistency?


    1. They’re pretty forgiving, so you could add more oil if you’d like, but make sure they stay in the fridge until you’re ready to eat them.

      Much love,
