Coconut Crispy Bars

Crispy cereal reminds me of my childhood.  I have made rice crispy treats so many times as a child.  These Coconut Crispy Bars are a different spin on them.  If you are a lover of all things coconut, you will love these!

If you would rather see a chocolate version, you can check out this recipe.  These would make the perfect treat for school lunchboxes since they are nut free.

I used brown rice crispy cereal with no added sugar for these, but really, any rice crispy cereal will work.  This recipe also may be yummy with a chocolate rice crispy cereal.  This recipe is great because you get a delicious coconut flavor, with hints of vanilla, and the crispy crunch to finish it off.

If you love the coconut vanilla combo, you may also like my coconut vanilla overnight oats.

  1. I don't think any store in my area has coconut butter. Is there a substitute or could I just use butter?
    1. I don't know if butter will work. If you can find shredded coconut in the store, you can easily make your own coconut butter too
  2. Hey, I believe coconut is actually a nut. Its probably less allergenic than peanuts but more so than almonds and cashews. Its so trendy now though, schools may not care.
    1. Coconuts are not in the nut category when it comes to allergies. It's not one of the top 8 allergens either. My daughter is allergic to tree nuts, but is fine with coconut. :)
