Rice Krispies Treats are one of those nostalgic sweets that bring me back to 3rd grade bake sales and holiday cooking with my Mom. Now that I’m a Mom, I like to surprise my daughters with a batch when they get off the bus! It’s such an easy recipe, my oldest is already making them on her own too. With just a few ingredients and simple directions to follow, this is a great treat to make for any occasion. And, thanks to Lovely Little Kitchen, I’ve found a “healthier” version that still tastes great! Substituting half of the butter with Island Fresh coconut oil  makes these Rice Krispies Treats a win-win! With a subtle coconut scent, Island Fresh is a versatile oil that doesn’t alter the flavor or consistency of these Rice Krispies Treats. If anything, I prefer the taste to the unrefined fats in all that butter!

Island Fresh Coconut Oil is the newest all-natural, organic, non-GM, and cold-pressed coconut oil…all important things to consider when choosing a quality coconut oil for cooking or using topically. Yes, you can eat it and use it on your body too. Coconut oil is an amazing natural solution that helps with weight management, dry skin, and dry, brittle hair. Just a few tablespoons each day can have incredible benefits.

What’s cold-pressed mean and why does that matter?

Cold-pressed refers to a traditional method of extraction that protects the essential nutrients and antioxidants and that doesn’t require any heating (which can cause those properties to evaporate). Island Fresh coconut oil comes in a big 54oz BPA-Free plastic container and doesn’t have to be refrigerated. I’m tempted to keep one in the kitchen (for cooking purposes) and one by my bedside (for part of my body care routine).

Are you ready to add coconut oil to your diet or body care needs? You can find Island Fresh coconut oil available on with free shipping for Prime members.
