Chocolate Chip Crispy Cereal Treats
This recipe is Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Soy-Free, Refined Sugar-Free, optionally Vegan, optionally Nut-Free, and optionally Gluten-Free (check the cereal!).
Serves: a dozen snack-worthy treats
  • ¼ cup honey or agave nectar
  • ¼ cup nut butter (peanut, almond, cashew, or even sunflower seed butter (for nut-free)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • Generous pinch of salt (omit if using salted nut butter)
  • 2 cups crispy brown rice cereal (Sometimes I mix it up, using half crispy brown rice cereal and half Uncle Sam Original Cereal)
  • 1 tablespoon flax seeds, ground in your spice grinder
  • ¼ cup (or more) semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips, chunks, or nibs
  1. Lightly grease a dozen muffin tins (if you have silicone muffin cups or good non-stick tins, then you can skip this step).
  2. In a small saucepan over low heat, gently melt together the honey, nut butter, and oil. Keep in mind, you are just trying to melt them and combine, not cook them! Stir in the vanilla and salt, if using.
  3. Remove from the heat and stir in the cereals and ground flax seed. Allow the mixture to cool for a couple of minutes, then stir in the chocolate (if you stir it in too quickly, it may melt a bit).
  4. With a spoon, scoop the mixture into your muffin tins/cups, and gently press it in, evening it out with the back of your spoon. If you use your fingers, the mixture may stick a bit.
  5. Freeze for at least 20 minutes. Pop out, and enjoy! Store any leftovers in the refrigerator or freezer in an airtight container. This will help to keep them crisp, firm, and fresh.
