Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup almond butter
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 cup crispy rice cereal I used GoGo Quinoa Chocolate Puffed Cereal
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup dried cherries or other dried fruit
  • 3/4 - 1 cup mixed seeds I used pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds

CHOCOLATE COATING:

  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

Instructions

  1. Line a baking try with parchment paper. Melt together, over medium-low heat, maple syrup, almond butter and coconut oil. Be sure not to boil the mixture, otherwise, the almond butter will start to burn the bottom of your pot.

  2. Once mixture is melted, add in crispy cereal, sea salt, dried fruit, seeds (leaving out the chocolate chips and coconut oil for coating).

  3. Combine the mixture well in your pot. Once well mixed, scoop out onto parchment paper and using a spatula, spread it out evenly, making sure to press down firmly. It won't take up the entire baking tray. Just spread it out into a square or rectangular shape. Then place it in the freezer to set.

  4. Meanwhile, over a double boiler, melt together chocolate chips and coconut oil.

  5. Remove bars from the freezer and using a sharp knife, cut them into 12 individual bars.

  6. Dip one side of the bars into the melted chocolate and place chocolate side up, back onto the parchment paper. Once all bars have been dipped (feel free to cover the entire bar in chocolate), place it back into the freezer for 20 minutes to set.

  7. Remove from the freezer and enjoy! Store bars in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or keep in the freezer.
