Ingredients

  • 3

    cups puffed millet*

  • 1/4

    cup plus 2 TB coconut butter**

  • 1/2

    cup honey

  • 4

    tsp cocoa powder

  • 1/4

    cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional)

Directions

Line an 8×8 pan with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray. Set aside. Pour puffed millet into a large mixing bowl and set aside. In a small saucepan, combine coconut butter, honey, and cocoa powder. Heat over medium, stirring continuously. When it starts to boil, remove from heat. Pour liquid ingredients over puffed millet and stir with a spatula. Add optional chocolate chips (they will melt) and stir well. Pour into pan and press down with a spatula. Take a piece of parchment/wax paper and spread over top. Press down hard with your hands or a hard object (like the side of a glass). Chill for at least 2 hours, uncovered, before cutting into squares. Bars should be stored in the fridge in an airtight container. Notes and Substitutions: *I used Nature’s Path puffed millet, purchased at Bulk Barn. Any puffed wheat cereal could also be used if you’re not avoiding gluten. **Coconut butter: Empty a bag of shredded, unsweetened coconut into a food processor and blend until it reaches the consistency of peanut butter. Scrape down the sides as needed. This takes anywhere from 5-15 minutes. Store it in the fridge and pop it in the microwave in 20-second intervals before using. It’s also a great spread on pancakes.
