As a college student, naturally, I have a major slight obsession with coffee...

As a normal human being, I have a profound addiction penchant for chocolate, and all things chocolate.

I may or may not have bought a bulk pack of natural, sugar free milk chocolate off of (hey, don't judge), and needed to make a dessert with it.  Krispy Treats came to my mind.  Again, naturally, so did coffee.  Mocha Almond Krispy Treats it is!  And oh so delicious they were--extremely soft and chewy, utterly decadent and satisfying, and totally, completely, healthy and guilt free!

Mocha Almond Krispy Treats:  [no bake, low fat, high fiber/protein, GF, vegan]
(makes 9 large treats)

    150g (5 cups) Crispy Brown Rice Cereal
    48g (1/2 cup) Old Fashioned Rolled Oats (GF if you like)
    13g (2 tbs) Ground Flaxseed
    1/8 tsp Salt

    210g (1/2 cup + 2 tbs) Brown Rice Syrup
    128g (1/2 cup) Raw Almond Butter
    1 tsp Stevia Extract
    1 tsp Chocolate Extract
    3/4 tsp Almond Extract
    64g (2 scoops) Chocolate Protein Powder
    1 tsp Instant Coffee (I used Starbucks VIA Columbia)

    2-3.5oz Sugar Free Milk Chocolate (or chocolate of choice)

1.  Line a brownie pan with parchment paper both ways.
2.  In a large mixing bowl, stir together the cereal, oats, flax and salt.
3.  In a large, microwave-safe bowl, stir together the rice syrup, almond butter and extracts (not the protein powder/coffee yet!).  Microwave at 30-second intervals, stirring between each one, until mixture is runny.  Stir in the protein powder and coffee one spoonful at a time.  Scoop over the dry ingredients and fold together.
4.  Scoop mixture into prepared pan and flatten.
5.  In a small, microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate in the microwave at 30-second intervals, stirring between each one, until melted.  Pipe into desired design.  Refrigerate until firm, slice and enjoy!

^^ I sliced them and then drizzled each with chocolate...
you know, so each piece has a little more goodness all the way around  :)

My dad took some to work and his coworkers said it tasted like Coffee Crisps!

Even though they already have caffeine, why not enjoy it with another caffeine source?


  1. Wow. This looks absolutely delicious! I just bought some rice cereal, and wanted to make something with it. This is perfect!

    1. Perfect timing, huh? Definitely take a look at my other krispy treat recipes then :)

  2. I have every single ingredient on hand. I'm totally making these over the weekend. I really wasn't expecting the recipe to be vegan before clicking through from Foodgawker. What a nice surprise.

  3. OMG I miss Coffee Crisps!!! Used to get them every Christmas from my aunt who comes down (to FL) from Canada for the winter. Do they still sell them in Canada? I will have to try these just so I can re-live my favorite treat. Thank you!

    1. Haha, your comment reminded me of the boxes and boxes of Turtles I used to buy every Christmas... and every other holiday lol ;)
      Hope you like the krispy treats!
