Healthy Blueberry Bliss Krispy Treats with Maple Icing - Desserts With Benefits

My father’s coworkers are demanding asking for more desserts.  Those little tips and comments here and there throughout the day finally made their way to me.  Of course, the first thing I thought was peanut butter, but after these, these and these, I figured they might want something new.  Okay, probably not… since no one can tire from PB, but I had some fresh homemade walnut butter on hand and thought krispy treats would be a great way to use it.

  1. These look incredible! And I love the Luna Bar comparison! They get away with marketing themselves as a healthy bar for women, but that ingredients list is terrible!

  2. These look delicious. Is there any thing I could use in place of the coconut oil, say canola oil?

    • Hmmm, I think canola oil might make the icing too liquidy or drippy… I would suggest non-hydrogenated vegetable shortening, Earth Balance or any natural product similar to those that are solid when cold. The icing should be firm when cold and and soft at room temp 🙂

  3. Hi Jessica-I am so happy that I found your site! I just made these today for my mom and I- I made her dinner and told her I would do a dessert. She could not stop saying how much she loves them. We even called my sister to tell her what she missed out on lol, cruel I know but it made my mom laugh. Thank you so much for sharing your nutrition knowledge. I will be making these again and others from you site.

  4. I was thinking about maybe subbing some fresh blueberries for some of the dried blueberries. Do you think the rice krispys would still hold together if I did that?
