We have officially done it. We've turned another childhood delight into a beauty-boosting and collagen-supporting dessert you will love! Introducing our fun to make, and a little messy, matcha beauty rice crispy bars. We love making a big batch of these to take to work as a midday snack. With a hint of matcha, these bars are great pick-me-ups throughout your days. Oh and they have collagen-supporting plant botanicals in every bite... did we mention that?
We make ours with some vegan butter and vegan marshmallows. Melting the butter and marshmallows together, you can add in our matcha vegan collagen support blend (1-2 stick packs or 1-2 scoops from our pouches). We also have other rice crispy recipes if you want to take some decorating or garnishing inspiration from them!
- Chocolate Superfood Rice Crispy
- Vegan Eggnog Rice Crispy
- Almond Butter and Chocolate Puffed Rice Squares
- Vegan White Chocolate Rice Crispy Treats
We love to top ours with some fruit like raspberries or you can use a white chocolate or chocolate drizzle too!
We recently visited the matcha farm that harvests the matcha we use in our matcha vegan collagen support blend. If you want to learn more about the origins of matcha, how our matcha is grown, or see photos of a matcha farm you should take a peak! Matcha has so many benefits, including skin benefits. For example, matcha is rich in L-Theanine, an amino acid that works to promote strong brain function, concentration, and increased calm without the nervous energy or jitters.* L-Theanine can also work to reduce anxiety because of the high and raw amounts that are found in matcha.* Anxiety and stress are among the number one culprits to those pesky pimples. Supplementing your diet with foods, like matcha that works to reduce these hormones can greatly improve the way your body reacts to them, helping your skin keep pimples at bay.*
