I always loved rice crispy treats, but haven’t eaten any for years, and never tried vegan ones. While in Vancouver last summer, I saw some matcha rice crispy treats in a coffee shop. Although I didn’t buy one, I loved the idea (I love matcha!) and planned on making some. They turned out wonderful: the earthiness and slight bitterness of the matcha gives a nice flavour

I’ve been seeing sun-dried bananas a couple times at the grocery stores and wanted to try them. I do love banana chips, but was intrigued by a more chewy dried bananas (the ones I found at my grocery store are by PRANA).

I liked the idea of using the traditional orange+chocolate combo, and decided to make an adult version (i.e., add alcohol) by using Grand Marnier in the batter and frosting.
