No-Cake Vanilla Cake Batter Bars

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!

  2. 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!

  7. Tina,

    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!


  8. Made these tonight with freeze dried strawberries from Trader Joes instead of sprinkles… Yumm! Strawberry shortcake anyone?
