Anyone remember Cocoa Krispies cereal? Well I’m bringing it back! (without the refined sugar, dextrose, flavorings, and chemicals). You in?
For this, I used puffed rice cereal (finally found one with just 1 ingredient!)
And instead of raw honey, I used date syrup because date syrup actually obtains it’s nutrients in high heat as opposed to raw honey….when heated, all the amazing living enzymes are killed in the honey (that’s why I save it for unheated applications and prefer to use date syrup in baking – though I have still been known to use raw honey but it’s basically there just for sweetness, nothing else)
And to keep this nut free, I used organic Sunbutter (tastes like peanut butter and is just 1 ingredient! – no salt, added oils or sugar!)
And last but not least, Vital Proteins Dark Chocolate Blackberry Collagen is by far one of my favorites (ok, they all are! LOL But really…this one is a game changer!) and when added to this cereal, it adds:
• Gut healing benefits
• Chocolate-y goodness
+ Probiotics (it contains Bacillus Coagulans – read THIS POST to know what this special probiotic does and why it’s my favorite!)
1 tsp coconut oil (or ghee for nut free)
3 Tbsp date syrup (15% off: lilsipper15 – expires 3/31/19)
1 1/2 Tbsp organic Sunbutter
1 scoop Vital Proteins Dark Chocolate Blackberry Collagen
2 cups puffed brown rice (I used this brand – just 1 ingredient!)
1. Pre-heat oven to 300 F.
2. Melt coconut first 3 ingredients until it forms a sauce, then stir in collagen.
3. Mix puffed rice with sauce then spread out on a lined baking sheet.
4. Bake for 15-20 minutes, moving rice around half way through baking. IMPORTANT: Allow to cool completely. Cooling makes them crispy. Store in an airtight container.
