A chewy block of good stuff – No Baking.

IMG_3063

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.
