3 Ingredient Nut-free Rice Krispie Treats

I absolutely love how these healthy rice krispie treats have no corn syrup or artificial coloring. If you have a food allergy, these treats will be perfect for you. In these rice krispie treats, we use a special marshmallow made with all real ingredients and NOTHING ARTIFICIAL.

All you need is:

  • Smashmallows (read more about these special marshmallows below)
  • Refined Coconut Oil
  • Crispy Brown Rice Cereal

Vanilla extract is optional!

I brought these yummy treats to a party once and no one even knew they were healthy! A lot of people actually said they were BETTER than the typical rice krispie treat because they didn’t taste fake or overly sweet.

What Makes These Rice Krispie Treats Healthy?

  • Healthy Marshmallow Swap: Instead of using regular marshmallows that have artificial colors, flavors and corn syrup, we use a special healthier marshmallow! I’ll talk more about that later. 
  • Butter Swap: We don’t use traditional butter in this healthy rice krispie treat recipe. Instead, we use refined coconut oil! (refined coconut oil has NO coconut flavor)
  • Cereal Swap: Typically, rice krispie treats call for rice krispies cereal. We use sprouted brown rice cereal for a clean ingredient swap! The sprouted brown rice cereal is made with coconut sugar too! And we all know how much I love coconut sugar! (If you don’t, read this!!!)

What kind of marshmallows?

The marshmallows we use in these rice krispie treats are the KEY to making them “healthy.” Ever heard of Smashmallows? They’re a brand of marshmallow that don’t contain corn syrup or anything artificial! The little squishy squares are sweetened with organic cane sugar! How cool is that? The brand also emphasizes how their marshmallows are gluten-free and fat-free!

Smashmallows have a ton of flavors to choose from too! For this recipe, I kept it as close to the real rice krispie flavor as possible by using the french vanilla smashmallow. If you’re feeling crazy, you can use the dipped cold brew, strawberries and cream, or any other flavor! That’s what makes this recipe so fun, tasty, and healthy!

They only take 5 minutes!

I LOVE how easy this recipe is. Not only is it just 3 ingredients, it’s also 3 simple steps. You can whip these together real quick before a party or if you’re needing an emergency sweet treat! (Happens to me all the time)

  1. First, melt the smashmallows and coconut oil together.
  2. Next, mix in the cereal.
  3. Finally, press into a pan, decorate, cut and serve!

How flexible is this recipe?

This healthy rice krispie treat recipe is very flexible! Feel free to swap the coconut oil for grass-fed butter if you’re looking for more of a rich flavor. If you don’t have sprouted brown rice crisps, then the original crispy rice cereal will work just fine! Feel free to try and make these treats with homemade marshmallows too!
