For any vegan with a sweet tooth, try straw patch Easter grass. I adapted this recipe from the back of a box of Shredded Wheat. With a few vegan friendly changes, straw patch Easter grass was a hit at the last CHIP (Complete Health Improvement Program) potluck. The table was laden with wonderful vegan dishes, and my straw patch Easter grass found its way to the dessert section.

A simple and easy non-cook recipe, straw patch Easter grass is easy enough for kids to make. Enjoy!

Straw patch Easter grass

6 cups mini shredded wheat

1 cup ground peanut butter (available at health food stores)

1 cup raisins

1 cup unsalted peanuts

1/2 cup coconut sugar

1/2 cup agave syrup

Mix all ingredients well. Press into a 9 x 11 rectangular baking pan.

Note: The original recipe, Grab & Go Peanut Butter Bars, calls for honey, but with the substitution of agave syrup, the mixture is less dense. Just scoop it out of the baking pan with a spoon and serve in small dessert dishes. A little serving goes a long way; it is a very sweet Easter treat.
