Coconut Rice Crispy Guilt Free Vegan Dessert Bars



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.
