Blissfully Delicious Rice Krispy Treats

Good Morning Lovelies! I have a new recipe for you today. About time right? I feel like it has been forever since I shared a recipe here. Last night the red heads and I were craving something yummy for dessert. We had eaten leftovers for dinner and needed a little special something to sweeten up our day. I went to my pantry and got out our coconut oil, rice krispies, and marshmallows. Yumminess in the making!

I used coconut oil in place of the traditional butter you would find in krispy treats. I love coconut oil, since it is so versatile. I use it now for everything. It can replace butter in recipes and is great to use in place of sprays (when greasing your pans). I will have to do a post on this soon. If you don't have coconut oil, you can use margarine or butter.


Ready to make some pure sweetness?


Let's get to it!



Delicious Rice Krispy Treats


1 16 oz. bag of marshmallows
4 tbl coconut oil (could also substitute margarine/butter)
5 cups rice krispy cereal.

Place coconut oil and marshmallows in a pot. Cook on low heat, until marshmallows have melted. Add cereal. Stir to combine and then place in a greased 9x13 baking dish.

Allow your treats to sit and cool. I made it about 20 minutes before the littles and I dug in. We have absolutely no self control:)


* I brush my pans with coconut oil. It is a healthier alternative to the sprays.
* To flatten my krispy treats, I use the back of a spatula (brushed with coconut oil).

Enjoy your rice krispy treats today!

  1. I feel like I should've known that about coconut oil. Is it a one for one substitution with butter? I'm going to have to try that in more of my baking. Thanks!

  2. Hey! I found you via your living with $14,000 a year story and I was/am addicted to your page. Because of one of your posts about a food co-op (I can't remember if you mentioned Bountiful Baskets or just co-op) either way I went to Google to see what this was about. It was then in February I found Bountiful Baskets and I have been contributing EVERY SINGLE week since then. I take my boyfriend and my daughter with me every weekend to volunteer as well. I can't thank you enough for mentioning a co-op. I wish I knew this existed a lot sooner LOL! I didn't see where I could contact you directly so I'm posting here! Thanks again!
