These bars are so good that they almost did not make it into the fridge to set up. It is yummy crunchy coconut-ty and healthy! Do you love Rice Crispy Bars but really think marshmallows are gross? Me too.
It is vegan, raw, no refined sugar and no cook… and so satiaiting! I adapted my recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie and created this bar mix in my Vitamix Dry container. You can use a blender or food processor too, Im sure. I just love my Vitamix.
- 1 cup shredded coconut (unsweetened)
- 1 cup crisp rice cereal
- 1/4 cup agave or pure maple syrup (or 1/4 cup water and 3-5 stevia packs)
- 2/3 cup organic extra virgin coconut oil
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/8 tsp Himalayan Pink salt
Mix all ingredients in the dry mix container beginning on variable speed 1 and work up to medium speed until combined and swirling around like a very thick milkshake. Remove and scrape into silicone baking forms. I used heart ice trays and cupcake holders. Place in refrigerator 1 hour or 15 minutes in freezer. Enjoy! If you have any left, cover with Glad Press and Seal in the fridge.
PS I made this into a vegan dessert because I don’t support gelatin as a food. I love horses, so if you do too, please don’t buy it or eat it.
