√ Raw Cacao Powder – antioxidants + rich, chocolate flavor
√ Raw Honey – natural sweetness
√ Natural Peanut Butter – healthy fat + protein
√ Sprouted Brown Rice Cereal – whole grain, gluten free cereal for sustained energy
√ Pure vanilla + Sea salt – great flavor without any additives
Bring the honey to a boil for 2 minutes in a small saucepan. (Don't skip this step! It's the key to getting the treats to hold their square shape and not crumble!)
While honey is heating, pour cereal into a large mixing bowl and set aside.
Line a medium casserole dish with parchment and set aside.
Remove boiled honey from heat and stir in peanut butter, vanilla, sea salt, and raw cacao powder. Pour mixture over the cereal and use a spatula to combine. Transfer mixture to prepared pan and press down firmly with the back of the spatula. Allow to rest 30 minutes before slicing.
*The cereal is much cheaper at my local grocery than on Amazon- check your store first if you want to save a few bucks!
