Is it just me or do you also sometimes wonder what to do with muesli? Of course you can enjoy it as a classic breakfast meal or snack but I always like to think outside the square and get a little more creative. Now I’m sure all of you by now know that I’m chocolates biggest fan so this recipe would be no surprise to you! These chocolate muesli buttons are so incredibly simple it’s stupid.
Thank you to Table of Plenty for their amazing Oven Baked Fruit Free Nutty Muesli. It provides the perfect balance against the dark chocolate. I decided to sprinkle a little extra goodness to my buttons which included extra sunflower seeds and tasty vibrant goji berries. If you’re like me and you need a snack in your refrigerator every single day of the week (you feel me?) I recommend whipping up a batch of these beauties because I’ll tell you something for free, besides waiting patiently for your chocolate to melt, these buttons will literary take you 5-10 minutes to create, winning?!
You don’t have to create anything fancy to have a scrumptious sweet treat and thats exactly what I want to show you here. Essentially, these chocolate buttons are only 2 ingredients if you choose not to sprinkle the extra sunflower seeds and goji berries, ha! Wow, it wouldn’t take Einstein to work that one out would it?
Vegan (if you use vegan chocolate)
I know a lot of you love a great vegan recipe, especially one that involves chocolate! I don’t always use vegan chocolate but when I do, It’s most likely a complete vegan recipe. Ok ok, I’m on fire today whipping out these obvious equations aren’t I? Basically, pick yourself up a couple blocks of vegan dark cooking chocolate to make these buttons 100% vegan. I don’t recommend writing your blog post up late at night because you will be resulted with random sentences such as this paragraph, good on you if you’re still with me!
