I based this on Ella's recipe for Quinoa and Cacao Crispy Treats. Not having popped quinoa available, I used another kind of gluten-free cereal called Gorilla Munch. You can really use any kind of cereal and your choice of mix-ins--nuts, cereal, dried fruit, etc. In the rendition pictured above, I used walnuts, pumpkin seeds, dried cranberry, and date pieces. Warning: addictive!
Makes 4 cups
From Deliciously Ella by Ella Woodward
5 Tblsp coconut oil
1/2 cup cocoa powder
6 Tblsp maple syrup
2 Tblsp almond butter
4 cups puffed cereal, nuts or chopped dried fruit (use gluten free cereal for a g-free version)
Place the coconut oil, cocoa powder, maple syrup and almond butter into a saucepan and gently heat for a few minutes until smooth and melted.
Meanwhile put your cereal, nuts and fruit into a mixing bowl. Pour the melted mixture over the cereal and stir until well combined.
Scoop the mixture into mini-muffin liners and freeze for 10 minutes until well-formed.
