Healthy Chocolate Rice Puff Squares

15 September 2016

So I eat a lot of cake and biscuits. I think that is a known fact if you have been reading my blog for a even short period of time.  
It is how I survive the sometimes long days of motherhood.  Plus anyway - even those who don't have kids - we all love a treat right? 

But I have been becoming more aware of how much of this stuff I am eating so I thought I would try some healthier treats - still with some chocolate in it but maybe just a bit better for me.

 These little squares do not disappoint and because of the dark chocolate you don't need a lot to satisfy your sweet craving.  
They are super easy to put together, pop in the fridge and a few hours later you cut them up and enjoy with a cup of tea.  
I have kept mine in the fridge and won't deny that I have maybe eaten a fair few since making them but hey - they are healthy, right?!.  

I have adapted this from a recipe I found in The Real Meal Revolution's Raising Superheros cookbook.

You will need:

1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup butter
2 teaspoons coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup puffed brown rice cereal
1/4 cup cocoa
100g chopped dark chocolate
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1/4 cup ground almonds

All you do is:

* Line your baking tray with some grease proof paper.
* In a pan melt the honey, butter, coconut oil and vanilla extract - bring it to the boil and then take off the heat.
* Stir in the cocoa and chocolate until all mixed together.
* Mix the remaining ingredients into the chocolate mixture, stir well until combined.
* Using your hands (as this normally works the best) press the mixture firmly into the lined baking tray.
* Pop in the fridge for a couple of hours to set and then cut into squares.
