This gluten-free crispy cake recipe is incredibly easy to make and uses only a few ingredients. The result is a deliciously crispy and gooey cake that children and adults will love. You may need to go to a bigger supermarket or order online in order to get hold of dairy-free spread and vegan marshmallows.

Leapin’ Lemurs and Choco Chimps are available from Envirokidz stores nationwide at a RRP of £2.99.


  • 75g Dairy Free Spread
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 300g Vegan Marshmallows

Firstly, use dairy-free spread or oil to grease a small baking tray or tin. Next, melt the dairy-free spread in a pan over a low heat.

Add the vanilla extract and the vegan marshmallows. Continue to heat and stir until the marshmallows melt and form a gloopy liquid. This can take a little while – just keep stirring! Once melted, turn off the heat and pour in the cereal.

Next, mix the cereal and the marshmallow mixture until the cereal is completely coated.

Next, pour the mixture into the baking tray or tin. It can be very sticky but try to flatten it and push it so that it forms an even layer and fills in the corners.

Chill in the fridge for an hour or two.

Once set, remove from tray and cut into squares. If you wish to decorate the crispy cakes, you can use melted dairy-free chocolate and drizzle over. Finally, decorate with any extra marshmallows.

    My nearly 6 year old would love this – lemurs are his favourite animal after watching the film Madagascar. He is really into maps and has been able to point out where Madagascar is for the last two years! By the way, those cakes look awesome. Never heard of Envirokidz before but will be looking out for the brand now.

    My daughter just loves animals. She won the golden trophy at school once and instead of opting to get a treat, she decided to sponsor a dog through The Dogs Trust. Sadly she has been through 4 different dogs as they keep passing away but she still sponsors, bless her heart.
