I threw these together as an alternative to the Aribars which we ran out of. I guess you could say they are the healthy and allergy friendly version of LCM bars too. These are so easy and quick to make. Perfect for lunchboxes, picnics or any time.
You will need...
4 cups puffed rice ( you could use rice bubbles, but they are not gluten free)
2 cups coconut
1/4 cup chia seeds
3/4 cup raw honey (you could use rice malt syrup, maple syrup or golden syrup)
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup raw cacao powder ( could replace with Berry Choc Chunk
or DariFree Chocolate)
What to do.....
Grease and line a square dish or lamington tin.
In a large mixing bowl combine puffed rice, coconut, chia seeds and cacao powder. Stir until combined.
Place coconut oil and golden syrup together in a heat resistant bowl or jug. Place jug into a dish of boiling water. Alternatively, heat gently in the microwave, or in a saucepan over low heat.
Pour coconut oil and sweetener into mixing bowl. Stir with a metal spoon until combined.
Scrape mixture into prepared dish. Press mixture into dish until evenly distributed.
refrigerate for a few hours until set.
For an even healthier version - replace the raw Cacao with Superfoods for Kidz - Berry Choc Chunk
- (Wild Crafted Certified Organic Raw Cacao Powder, Certified Organic Raw Dark Chocolate [Organic Raw Cacao Powder, Organic Vanilla Beans], Certified Organic Coconut Sugar, Himalayan Crystal Salt.) 70%. Acai Berry Blend - (Certified Organic Acai Berry, Organic Blueberry, Organic Blackberry, Organic Raspberry, Organic Goji Berry [Wolf Berry], Organic Cranberry, Organic Mango, Organic Beetroot, *Calcium Citrate.)
*Calcium Citrate: is a calcium supplement derived from citric acid - a substance commonly found in citrus fruits and other fruits and vegetables. Calcium is very important for children to support healthy bone growth and development. If your child has a dairy allergy it is essential to ensure they are getting the required daily dose of calcium
