This was in the recent Bon Appetit, I just changed it, as usual, to suit us. The chocolate on top – that is all about Paul. He wouldn’t touch it without chocolate – old man thing!
2 Cups brown rice cereal
1/2 Cup Millet – I like this as it gives it a crunchy/pop
1/2 Cup rolled oats – not my fav., a bran cereal of some sort would work. I do like Kashi Pumpkin flakes cereal
1/2 Cup dried fruit – I used cherries
1/2 Cup coconut flakes
1/2 Cup seeds & nuts – sesame, poppy, chia, pumpkin- I used all and pistachios & walnuts
Butter a baking dish well. Microwave or heat on stove:
1/4 Cup brown sugar
1/4 C. Maple syrup or honey
2 Tbs. Butter or Coconut oil – I used butter
Pinch of sea salt flakes
1/4 Cup or more of Almond butter
1 tsp. Vanilla
Blend till smooth, pour over mixture in bowl, mix well, spread out press down in buttered dish. Use a spatula to press firmer. Dribble melted chocolate on top and dust with anything cool you like for added interest….Cover and chill to set up.
Slice w/warm knife. Really nice room temp. but I keep them in the fridge the rest of the time.
I like these but I really prefer less ingredients in my intake. But then again I was never a rice krispies kind of person…something about that mouth feel. It’s large action. Hard to explain.
