Description

Just like the original Rice Krispie’, only made with chocolate and created without any unnecessary flavours and additives! These crispy squares are as light as a feather so you may need a few of these to satisfy your sweet tooth. These are lightly sweetened with maple syrup, that’s it, no refined sugars! 


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 cups (130g) unsweetened rice puff cereal, I use Natures Path Organic Crispy Rice Cereal
  • 1/4 cup (25g) natural unsweetened cocoa powder 
  • 1/3 cup (30g) desiccated coconut 
  • 50g (1/3 cup) unsalted butter 
  • 1/4 cup (70g) almond butter
  • 1/4 cup (80g) maple syrup 
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract 

Instructions

  1. Line a 8” x 8“ square baking pan with parchment paper, set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add rice puffs, cocoa and coconut. Mix until well combined. 
  3. In a medium sized pot over low-medium heat, add butter, almond butter and maple syrup. Mix with a wooden spoon until everything is melted down and smooth. The almond butter may take the longest to melt down, just keep mixing! 
  4. Remove from heat and pour it over the dry mixture. Gently mixing until the puffs are well coated. 
  5. Press mixture firmly into lined pan. Pressing down with your hands so the top is in an even layer. Then take a flat spatula and flatten the slice again, you want to ensure it’s compacted/firmly packed, so it sticks together and doesn’t crumble when slicing.
  6. Transfer to refrigerator for 1-2 hours or until completely set and firm. You may also leave it in the fridge overnight. 
  7. Remove from pan and slice into squares. 
  8. Enjoy! 
  9. Store in an airtight container, refrigerated, for 1 week – 10 days.
