A new recipe! At last. And one you will love as it’s:
- Easy to prepare
- Healthier (than your boxed childhood favourite)
- Made with only 4 ingredients.
I was inspired by Sarah Graham’s healthy cacao pops to make a healthy version of one of our favourite childhood cereals: RICE KRISPIES. Not just plain ol’ Rice Krispies but CHOCOLATEY RICE KRISPIES. ‘Cause everything is better with some real chocolate goodness.
Since my husband and I decided to make life healthier at home by cutting out processed foods and refined sugar, cereal was one of the first things to go. Unfortunately the cereals in our stores are loaded with unnecessary sugar and other junk. Bacon and eggs as well as my granola have become our go-to breakfast meal but the variety-seeker in me needs more options. When I saw my favourite online store advertise Sarah’s Cacao Pops, I kicked myself for not thinking about this option earlier. Faithful-to-Nature has everything my healthy pantry needs and today’s ingredients can be found there. I’ve listed the ones I bought at the end of this post.
My recipe is quite similar to Sarah’s but I replaced the coconut oil with cold pressed olive oil. Since attending the Missing Piece In Your Puzzle seminar, I have been trying to replace coconut oil and butter with olive oil wherever I can. The Mediterranean lifestyle talk at that seminar resonated with so much in me, hence the change. I was a bit concerned that the cereal would have the olive oil taste to it, but there isn’t any – just pure chocolatey goodness. And let’s not forget the crunch when you enjoy it with cold milk.
