Healthy Chocolate Rice Crispy Cakes

I have a serious sweet tooth as do my girls and I need a little chocolate fix to keep me going throughout the day. As I’ve been trying to eat clean for the past couple of weeks I thought I would make some healthy chocolate rice crispy cakes then the kids could eat them too.

These are made with a cacao powder, almond butter, maple syrup and coconut oil so they are much better for you than traditional chocolate rice crispy cakes. If you were feeling more virtuous you could swap the rice crispies for puffed quinoa.

  1. Melt all the ingredient except the rice crispies together in a saucepan until melted and mixed. Stir into rice crispies until they are all nicely coated. Scoop into silicone ice cube trays and freeze. Pop one out whenever you need a little sweet treat.

    Hey Ali,

    I know kids would absolutely love these! They remind me at my time in Chiro (youth movement).
    We ate them a lot over there! Good times, good memories!

    Thanks for sharing!
