Snacks is commonly reported to be the time when most of us grab anything we have handy. And usually an apple, banana, nuts or a whole grain toast come after other not so healthy options.
Based on a recipe that contained much more “adult “ ingredients (i.e. coffee beans) and no school friendly ingredients (i.e. roasted nuts) I came up with this recipe that beats all that and is delicious.
This is what you need:
- Cut steel oats, 1 1/3 cups
- Crispy rice cereal, 1 cup
- Chocolate chips, 1/4 cup
- Shredded coconut, 1/4 cup
- Coconut oil, 2 tbps
- Sunflower butter, 1/4
- Brown rice syrup (or honey, or Maple syrup), 1/4 cup
1- In one bowl add the dry ingredients and mix gently, set aside. (I used Crispy cereal Xmas version, thats why the added color)
2- In a deep pan add the oil, butter and maple or rice syrup and put on medium heat until it starts simmering. Remove from heat and add a few vanilla (from beans or extract).
3- Add the warm liquid to the dry ingredients and using a wood spoon mix well. Chocolate chips will melt.
4- Spread the mixture on the flat plate (you can use parchment paper here) and freeze for about 20 mins.
5- Cut them in the desired sizes and enjoy them!!
To keep them fresh wrap them individually and place them in an air tight container in the fridge for 4-5 days
