I had a little fun in the kitchen yesterday afternoon and made some delicious No-Bake Vanilla Cake Batter Bars. I love that I didn’t even need to turn on my oven!
Besides being a no-bake recipe, these bars only require four ingredients””thanks to Nikki’s Vanilla Cake Batter Coconut Butter.
And making these bars is seriously a piece of cake: Just mix all of the ingredients together, spread in a pan, and refrigerate for about an hour. Easy as that!
You really must try these bars. Each bite is a sweet taste of crispy vanilla cake.
With chocolate sprinkles!
The best part about this recipe is that it’s easily customizable. You can make it with any kind of coconut butter you want (Chocolate Hazelnut Brownie?) and, of course, change up the color of the sprinkles. Don’t you think rainbow sprinkles would be a ton of fun? Or crushed up Oreo cookies? Oooh, so many delicious ideas!
No-Bake Vanilla Cake Batter Bars
- 6 ounces of Nikki’s vanilla cake batter coconut butter
- 1.5 cups crisp cereal
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup sprinkles
- pinch of sea salt
- Scoop coconut butter from jar into a large microwave-safe bowl. Soften coconut butter by microwaving it for 60 seconds (remove from microwave and stir after 30 seconds). Be careful not burn the coconut butter.
- Once coconut butter is softened, add cereal, honey, sprinkles, and sea salt to the bowl and mix together.
- Line a 9” X 9” baking dish with wax paper and then evenly spread mixture inside. Flatten top with a spatula.
- Refrigerate for at least one hour. Cut into bars and serve immediately.
Makes 9 bars

Holy MOly! I just ordered this and then looked at the nutritionals… 80% of your daily saturated fat?!?!
Well, it is coconut butter! 😉 And not all saturated fat is bad. Some of it is actually GOOD for you!
@Tina: Thanks for the link! Gives me a bit more comfort haha
What an easy sweet. I just love a simple recipe like this. Thanks!
I just ordered the Pistachio flavor!!
ENJOY! Let me know what you think! 🙂
It’s been so longn since I’ve enjoyed coconut butter! And I’ve been having problems fitting good fat in my diet. Thinking maybe a coconut butter-y treat is the thing I need to get my fat intake back to happy? 😉
I love how you add so many different options! Totally going to buy some now!
These look absolutely delicious. Quick and easy! 🙂
Wow! Yum! Apparently I REALLY need to get my hands on some of this Nikki’s Coconut Butter sooner rather than later. It sounds amazing!
Tina, what is your favorite flavor? Thinking about ordering 1 jar.

Nice! Enjoy! ðŸ˜„
That coconut butter sounds amazing!
Thanks for sharing this recipe! Do to the high level of saturated fat I will bake this cake on my cheat day
Fancy rice krispies! Love this idea! I haven’t made a rice krispie since I was a kid but these look oh so good.
Looks awesome. Thanks for the share.
I love all things cake batter and these look delicious! I will have to try them.
OMG yummy! Sounds like a nut butter rice crispy treat and like you said, so many possibilities.
Those look delicious!
If I could eat sugar – I COULD NOT have those in my house – they’d be gone in negative five seconds, HOLY MOLY!
These look soooooo good! I have been wanting to make my own healthy bars to take to work, and I won’t eat anything unless it’s sweet. I have also been wanting to incorporate coconut oil into my diet – so win, win!
I can’t wait to try these.
I think they would look even better with rainbow sprinkles.
These look great!! Entry for the april cookbook challenge – I made Nom Nom Paleo’s Slow Cooker Asian Pork Ribs in the crock for today. So great!!
I really love vanilla but there are so few recipes I really like. I tried yours tough and voila I love it. And the best thing is that one does not need an oven.
Thank you and keep it up!
I am a bodybuilder an usally don’t eat candy, but your vanilla recipe looked so delicous that I had to try it. And know can’t stop eating them cookies hopefully they help me to grow my muscles too 😉
I love no-bake recepies. Let’s go to the kitchen! Thank you for sharing
I tried to order using the promo code pistachio to get 15% off my order but it didn’t work. Is there a different promo code to try?
I think it expired. It was only good through yesterday. Sorry. I’ll let you guys know when they have another sale!
I ordered some of Nikki’s coconut butter last time there was a sale and it is super hard to get out of the jar with a knife. It crumbles, I know on the jar it says something about warming it up to make it easier to scoop out of the jar. have you experienced that before or do you think it would be a good idea to just heat up the whole jar?
This recipe looks awesome btw!
Made these tonight with freeze dried strawberries from Trader Joes instead of sprinkles… Yumm! Strawberry shortcake anyone?
How many carbs are in this? It looks great, but not sure if it’s high in carbs or not.
These look really good, can’t wait to try them when I have the time!
