“The new graduates have gone to check out the office near the beach today.”

“Yes?”

“I told them they should check out the roof top area and then go to the patisserie nearby.”

“Yes?”

“I told them they should have cake by the ocean!”

“MUM. You did not.”

“Why? The cakes there are delicious and it’s next to the beach! It’s like the song, they can fulfill the lyrics.”

“Mum, do you know what those lyrics are referencing?”

“Arman, do you think I’m stupid? Of course I do. Instead of getting ice cream from a truck, they suggest having cake. Who wouldn’t want cake instead of ice cream, especially by the ocean?”

I really hope these new graduates realize my mum is one who is stuck in the world where anything above PG13 is non-existent. After she told me that, I messaged Niki telling her she was off her cannon again. She messaged back telling me mum suggested she go with her to have carrot cake by the beach.

Oh dear.

Okay, enough about that silly song and what it truly means. Let’s talk about muffin tins and how I’ve been having just a little bit TOO much fun with them lately. 

Ever since I mentioned in this post that I’ll be sharing a slew of muffin tin NO BAKE recipes, I kind of went overboard with it…not that I really mind. Some went a little bit crazy (and unsurprisingly, failed), like trying to make a smoothie pops in them. Others had the opposite effect, and I cannot wait to share those beauties with you! 

So let’s talk today’s fool proof recipe- These healthy 3 ingredient no bake rice crispy cups!

These healthy 3 Ingredient No Bake Rice Crispy Cups are one of my most made and snacks of choice- I always make a batch of them WEEKLY. They are ridiculously easy to make and literally take five minutes. Unlike traditional rice crispy treats, this version contains no butter, margarine, oil, marshmallows or white sugar, but you’d never be able to tell. Why? Because they taste better, that’s why! I made these even easier than my original as you don’t need a pan and the forthcoming knife to slice them up- Simply scoop 1/4 cup portions into a muffin tin, top with optional chocolate chips and voila- Cups, cups, rice crispy cups. Bonus? They are suitable for those following a vegan, gluten free and dairy free lifestyle! 

HACK! While I prefer brown rice syrup as my sticky sweetener, you can totally still make this with agave nectar, pure manuka honey (will no longer be strictly vegan!) and pure maple syrup. Saying that, you’ll need to add an extra tablespoon or two. The reason for this is that they aren’t as sticky as brown rice syrup is. That shitake mushroom is one tough mudder.

  1. I tried to get rice crispies a couple of weeks ago and couldn’t get any. I guess I have to try again!

    Oh those song lyrics… sometimes I get it, sometimes I don’t. I blame the language gap because it clearly can’t be my innocent mind 😛

  2. Not gonna lie. I had to go google what song you were talking about. It wasn’t Aerosmith, Def Leppard, Journey or any of my classic rock bands. Hah! I’m also 100 years old. But one thing that I still do understand is rice crispy treats. I love this healthy twist on the classic…and the cups! Bite-sized beauties they are!

  3. I usually know what the song means…and sing it anyway 😉 When I was a kid, my dad wouldn’t let us listen to anything but gospel music, so I’ve done my time. I can listen to whatever I want. Thanks for reshaping the s’mores cup recipe, I just bought vegan marshmallows to make them

  4. Arman, i am notorious at getting the lyrics wrong. Everyone makes fun of me. Gently refer your mum(i’m pretty sure i am older) to youtube for james cordon car kareoke with nick jonus and demi lovato. His acapella skills are legendary which makes this Brilliant series irresistible.warn your mum, she will jump on the car kareoke for >hour binge session. Car kareoke vs. #mycatthinks binging to change a bad day.:-) always a pleasure,MSM

  5. I had no clue about this song. My excuse: I am Swiss and born in the 70’s, so basically a Grandma.

    But it really is a Swiss thing. Our youngest coach at the gym (19) plays ‘Smoke Weed everyday’ when she teaches the Masters class (60+ people) – until I explained her what Snoop is talking about. The oldies loved it. I was shocked.

  6. You should have seen my mother scream “Where do you find the nuts???” across Trader Joe’s. YIKES. Anyways, I can totally find myself using this recipe–would it work with another kind of cereal?

  7. Hi! I have never seen these with nut butters before!
    Do you think it would work with tahini as well? My sons are intolerant to nut butters 🙁 But I don’t want to waste expensive Tahini if it def doesn’t work
    Thanks heaps 🙂

  8. These are outrageous! I doubled the puffed rice and used white chocolate chips in place of the chocolate chips. And, I chose to use honey as the sweeter. SOOOOOOOO Good. My husband was digging in the bowl before I finished shaping them in the cupcake molds. Thank you for the great recipe.
