  • Preparation time: 30 minutes
  • Total time: 1 hour
  • Total yield: Makes 50 treats
  • Cuisine: Desserts and sweets


  • 2 teaspoons of pure, good quality vanilla extract
  • ? cup of unsweetened plant-based milk, for example, soy, almond, rice or cashew milk
  • ¼ to ? cup of pure maple syrup
