Serving Suggestion:

How To:

  1. To a small saucepan add your almond butter, maple syrup, coconut sugar, vanilla extract and pinch of salt. Heat on low and stir to combine.
  2. While the mixture is warming, add your brown rice puffed cereal to a medium size mixing bowl and add your chocolate chips to a microwave safe dish.
  3. Heat chocolate chips on 30 second intervals, mixing between until fully melted.
  4. Next, line a medium sized baking pan/casserole pan with parchment paper.
  5. Once your maple/almond butter mixture is warmed and smooth and creamy, pour over your brown rice cereal. Stir until fully combined. Pour your rice crispy mixture into the lined baking pan and press down until even.
  6. Next, drizzle your melted chocolate over the top, then sprinkle your toasted coconut over the top of the chocolate so that it can stick.
  7. Let cool in the fridge for 1-2 hours. Once cooled, remove from the baking pan and slice into even squares. Serve and enjoy!
