Parenting is fun but it is also really hard. One of the biggest challenges most parents face is the battle of getting them to eat. They can be picky. Between not liking this color food one day and deciding that their favorite meal is suddenly “gross” the next day, it seems like it never ends. On top of it all, having dietary restrictions or preferences can make it even that much harder!
Well, parents, we have some pretty fun recipes to help make it easier to find kid-friendly food that is fun to make and vegan too! Make sure to get them involved. The more they help the more likely they will be to want to try it.
Vegan Rice Krispies
Additional flavor options:
- Line a 9 x 13-inch baking pan with parchment paper and lightly spray with oil.
- In a large saucepan, melt the vegan butter. Once melted, slowly add the vegan marshmallows while continuously stirring, until the marshmallows are melted. Unlike traditional marshmallows, these will be more blob-like.
- Remove the pan from heat and stir in the vanilla. Slowly fold in the Rice Krispies using a large flat baking spoon or spatula.
- Spoon into the pan and press down evenly either with your hands or spatula.
- Cool for 1 hour.
- Remove from the pan, cut, enjoy!
Vegan Chocolate Donuts with Vanilla Glaze
1/4 teaspoon salt (we prefer sea salt)
- Add all of the ingredients to a medium-sized bowl.
- Continuously stir until a smooth glaze is formed.
- After the donuts have cooled, dip the top of the donut into the glaze and return to the cooling rack.
- Allow the glaze to harden.
Serve and enjoy!

- Add the other the oat flour and milk until combined.
- Heat a little oil in a skillet over medium heat.
