Chocolate puffed cereal bars
Our Chocolate puffed cereal bars are great way of getting kids into the kitchen. With no baking, but plenty of stirring they are quick and simple to put together. With the ingredients being things you probably already have in your kitchen this is the perfect recipe for keeping kids occupied for a little longer. We love to have these sat out in the sunshine when homeschool’s out for the day! We’ve created a series of Nourish Kids in the Kitchen videos on our IGTV channel, why not join us and find many more nourishing treats that the kids can prepare themselves. Try our berry smoothie for the hot weekend ahead!
1 cup puffed cereal (I use puffed quinoa)
1/3 cup buckwheat (Or oats or chopped nuts)
1 cup coconut
1/3 cup sunflower seeds
1/3 cup currants
3 Tbsp cacao powder
1/4 cup maple syrup
2/3 cup melted coconut oil
Mix well in a large bowl all the dry ingredients.
Add in the wet ingredients and stir until well mixed together. The mixture will stick together when pressed.
Press into a lined tin (I use a loaf tin). Make sure you press it in firmly.
Place in fridge/freezer until hard.
Remove from tin and cut into squares. Then store in fridge or freezer in an airtight container. Enjoy x
Use puffed rice or some form of puffed cereal if you don’t have puffed quinoa. You can also replace the maple syrup with honey and the coconut oil with melted butter instead.
