Rice Krispie Cookie Dough Pinwheel Treats {Vegan}

Thank you for sharing!

My life is so full of silly ridiculousness sometimes. I have like this running list of things that I’d like to get done each day and, sometimes before 8am, I’m derailed. I was telling my mom just the other day that I used to pride myself on being 15 minutes early for every appointment. And now I’m either late or shaving it so close, I might as well be late. My mom reassures me that baby #2 is the time-eating culprit. I think she’s too cute for that, but the proof is in the pudding. So, I’m trying to come-up with ways to say “I’m sorry” when I’m late everywhere. Hence this fantastic creation I like to call: Rice Krispie Cookie Dough Pinwheel Treats. I can make them while I get the babies ready to go and be out the door just shy of 5 minutes late. Well, maybe.

My kids love the rice krispies treats with cookie dough swirled throughout. They beg me for them almost every day!

Ingredients for Rice Krispie Cookie Dough Pinwheel Treats

Rice Krispies

  • 3 tblspn coconut oil
  • 1 bag of mini-marsmallows (4 cups)
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal (or similar)

Cookie Dough

  • 3/8 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/8 cup granulated white sugar
  • 3 tblspn coconut milk (the kind you use for cereal, not the canned kind, unless that’s all you’ve got, but really at that point, don’t open a whole can to do this…just put some water in the milk’s place and see how it works out)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, room temperature
  • 1 cup oat flour (or, you can be cheap and lazy like me and just use baby oatmeal cereal)
  • 1/2 cup dairy-free chocolate chips (homemade or some of that store bought stuff, either way…but one day I’m going to make a recipe for some made with chocolate liqueur, so keep an eye-out for that)

How to Make Rice Krispie Cookie Dough Pinwheel Treats

  1. To make the Rice Krispie treats, in a large saucepan or dutch oven, melt coconut oil over medium heat.
  2. Add in marshmallows and continuously stir until marshmallows have melted.
  3. Remove from heat.
  4. Add Rice Krispies and continuously stir until all Rice Krispies are covered in marshmallow deliciousity.
  5. Allow to cool for 5 minutes until mixture  can be safely handled.
  6. While that’s cooling, to make the cookie dough, cream the coconut oil and sugars together.
  7. Add vanilla, milk and salt and mix thoroughly.
  8. Mix-in the oat flour in 1/4 cup increments until mixture is smooth.
  9. Stir-in the chocolate chips.
  10. Lay-out a large sheet of wax paper and spray with your favorite cooking spray so the Rice Krispies won’t stick.
  11. Take the Rice Krispies and spread them in a rectangle across the wax paper–wet your hands to keep your skin from sticking to the treat mixture. Make sure it’s a consistent thickness all the way across and no more than 1/2 deep.
  12. Spread the cookie dough over the Rice Krispies evenly.
  13. On one end, lift the wax paper and kind of fold it over, forcing the Rice Krispies to roll-over. Keep rolling the whole thing tightly.
  14. Once it’s in a roll, mash it just a little as you roll it to make sure the layers are melded together.
  15. Using a sharp, wet knife, slice the roll into 1-inch wide cookie-slices.
  16. I can’t tell you what to do with them, but it involves an obscenely full mouth. Heh.
