Coconut Crunch Berry Cereal Treats

Hello friends!

I have to apologize for being MIA last week; I sprained my wrist while moving furniture and couldn’t grab things, let alone bake or cook. It’s weird how much you realize you rely on one body part once you can no longer use it. (Shampooing your head with one hand is not an enjoyable experience.)

But my wrist has healed and I am back with these tropical cereal treats!

Oh, and I’m back with a little site-revamp as well! Since the site turned three years old a few weeks ago, I’ve been thinking about where I want to go with it. The past three years have been full of sweet treats and baked goods, and much of this was focused on me learning how to create recipes for marvelous muffins, fabulous fudge, creative cupcakes, and more. 

I’ve loved every bit of it, but now it’s time to take my culinary education one step further. Though the desserts and baked goods aren’t going anywhere (other than my stomach), I think it’s about time for them to make room for experiments of the savory variety. I’ve posted savory dishes here and there, but it’s never been about learning skills or, more importantly, conquering fears. 

One of the biggest additions to the blog, and the one I’m the most excited about, will be the “Fear No Food” section, where I will post about conquering my cooking-phobias. You can expect my quirky, spazzy self to brave cooking methods like deep-frying, braising, and poaching. I will (hopefully) master dumplings, homemade pastas, and whatever else pops into my mind.

And since the blog is “growing up” so to speak, I thought it was about time that the look and feel of the blog grow up a bit too. Just a bit though. A little less pinks and blues but no less fun, you know?

It’s not like I can stop randomly shouting at you in caps lock or using a ridiculous amount of ellipsis. What would even be the point of talking to you then?!

It should be lots of fun and I hope you’ll stick around for the ride! 

Plus, there will still be plenty of sweet treats to sink your teeth into each week. :)

This week I bring you a super simple, no-bake dessert that puts a tropical spin on the classic Rice Krispie Treat. Just swap out the rice krispies for Crunch Berries, throw in some shredded coconut, and poof! Instant dessert in adorable portable form.

These Coconut Crunch Berry Cereal Treats will quickly become a summertime favorite. They come together in minutes and are a fun way to spend the afternoon (with or without little ones!).

I’ll be back on Thursday with a hearty vegetarian breakfast, so be sure to check back first thing in the morning! 

Happy (No) Baking!

  2. Love love love the revamp. On saturday I’m scheduled to do exactly the same. I’m planning on focusing on more young and budget friendly savoury recipes, since that’s what I’m eating all the time anyway! These look fab! And hello coconut! You’ve always got me with coconut Jess!

  5. Ugh, glad your wrist is feeling better. I know all too well of functionless body parts as my wrists and hands are pretty much like that 24/7 with my darned arthritis. Sucks to have it so young, but hey ho.

    You came back with a big bang, these bad boys are awesome! I love how they’re ‘almost’ like krispie treats and OMG the addition of the coconut! *squeals* Too bad we don’t get that cereal over here.

    Fancy sending me a care package, hint hint? ;) I’ll repay you in whatever goodies you like.

    • Oh man no crunch berries?!? What a bummer. :/ But I bet it would be just as good with another fruity cereal if you have anything similar! :D Thanks Lisa!

  6. Lots of congrats! Congrats that your wrist is better! We don’t appreciate our body parts until they stop working! I don’t think we even realize how much we depend on our hands, wrists, toes, ankles, etc. until they are out of commission. Next, congrats on the site update! More sophisticated yet maintaining your perky personality. :) Finally, congrats on this colorful, crunchy, chewy cereal bar! Yum. :)
