  • 1⁄4 cup butter
  • 2 cups coconut sugar
  • 1⁄2 cup full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 3⁄4 cup natural peanut butter
  • 2 3⁄4 cups Rice Krispies cereal


  • Grease an 8-by-8-inch baking dish and set aside.
  • In a small saucepan, combine the butter, coconut sugar, and coconut milk. Mix until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to a boil over low heat. Allow to boil for 5 minutes, stirring frequently so the mixture does not burn. Remove pan from heat and stir in the vanilla and peanut butter.
