Vegan Peanut Butter Confetti Bites

You know those Peanut Butter Confetti Squares right? Yeah, you know, they’re the squares you can get at your local coffee shop and enjoy while having a cup of Joe.   We absolutely love them and I wanted to make a “healthier” vegan version to have in the home for a treat. Now lets get something straight, you don’t have to “healthify” every single recipe you enjoy. If you want the real thing just go for it. However, if there is a chance I can make a healthier/vegan version at home for days when we lent or when I want to cut back on sugar I usually will. That’s just me. 

So after playing around with a few ingredients, my mission was accomplished! Couldn’t believe how simple they were to make!

Here’s the recipe:

Vegan Peanut Butter Confetti Bites


  • 1 cup coconut oil 
  • 1 cup all natural smooth peanut butter (Well stirred. Store in the fridge so that the oil doesn’t separate back to the top.)
  • 1/2 cup 100% organic pure maple syrup
  • 3 cups colourful mini marshmallows or any vegan marshmallows of your choice.
  • pinch of salt


  1. Add your coconut oil, maple syrup, peanut butter and a pinch of salt to a small saucepan and warm them up together over low heat.  Heat them just slightly until the coconut oil has completely melted.  Remove from heat and whisk thoroughly until the mixture is completely smooth. Note: Don’t overheat the mixture as you will melt the marshmallows when you add them.  It is also key here to use coconut oil that is hard at room temperature so that the mixture can harden in the freezer.
  2. Remove from the heat and pour mixture into a glass bowl. Let the mixture cool in the fridge for 3-5 minutes. This step will help to evenly distribute the peanut butter mixture throughout the marshmallows.  (I sometimes skip this step as I don’t always mind the fudgy mixture at the bottom with the marshmallows more on top.)
  3. Remove from the fridge, add your mini marshmallows and stir to coat.
  4. Line a 9×9 pan with parchment paper. Pour mixture into the pan and put them into the freezer for 30 minutes or until hard. 
  5. Once hard, lift out of pan and cut into 16 squares. Note: If the squares are too hard to cut you can let them sit out for five minutes before cutting. 

Note: Once cut, I like keeping these goodies in an airtight container in the fridge.  This way I can treat myself, my children or guests to one with coffee, or as a treat after dinner.  Avoid leaving them out on the counter as they will soften up too much if left out for too long.
