The prettiest purple cereal treats packed with berry flavor, a pop of protein, and a white chocolate blueberry layer on top. These blueberry rice crispy treats make for a sweet no-bake vegan gluten-free snack!


  • 3 cups (105g) crispy brown rice cereal
  • 1/2 cup (45g) protein powder (optional, see notes for substitution*)
  • 1 cup (45g) freeze dried blueberries (crushed or whole or a mix)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3/4 cup (190g) tahini (or nut/seed butter of choice)
  • 1/2 cup (160g) maple syrup or honey
  • 2 tbsp (25g) coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

White Chocolate Blueberry Ganache Topping


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cereal, protein powder, freeze dried blueberries, and salt.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the tahini, sweetener, coconut oil, and vanilla. Microwave together for 30 seconds to melt coconut oil, then stir until smooth.
  3. Add this wet mixture to the cereal mixture, and mix to evenly coat.
  4. Press firmly into an 8 x 8” pan lined with parchment paper.
  5. Refrigerate while you prepare the topping.
  6. Defrost the frozen blueberries (about 90 seconds in the microwave or stovetop). Press through a sieve to extract the juice (about 2 tbsp).
  7. Melt the white chocolate chips with the coconut milk. Stir until smooth. Stir in the blueberry juice.
  8. Let this mixture cool and thicken for about one hour at room temperature. Then pour/spread over top of the bars.
  9. Refrigerate for 4 hours. Then slice. Keep leftovers in the fridge.


*If you want to omit the protein powder, grind up 3/4 cup of cereal (~1/2 cup after grinding) to a flour like consistency and use that instead. The powdery form will help the treats hold together vs using all whole cereal.
