Ingredients

BASE

  • 3 cups organic puffed brown rice
  • 3/4 cup organic crunchy peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp organic virgin coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup organic brown rice syrup
  • 3/4 cup organic omega Seed Mix
  • 1 tsp organic vanilla powder
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds roughly chopped

CHOCOLATE TOPPING

  • 3 tbsp organic coconut butter
  • 2 tbsp organic virgin coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup organic cacao powder lightly packed
  • 1 tbsp organic brown rice syrup

Method

  • Preheat a fan-forced oven to 150°C. Bake puffed rice for 15 minutes on a lined baking tray, stirring halfway through. (This gives the rice puffs a crunchy texture). Set aside.
  • Line a 20cm square baking tin with baking paper.
  • Add the peanut butter, coconut oil & vanilla <g class="gr_ gr_65 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim Grammar multiReplace" id="65" data-gr-id="65">to</g> a saucepan and combine, stirring constantly over a low heat. Remove saucepan from heat and stir the brown rice syrup into the mixture until combined. Allow to cool slightly, but not completely.
  • In a large bowl add the baked puffed rice and omega seed mix. Then combine the wet mix with the dry mix and stir well.
  • Press the mixture firmly into a lined baking tin with the back of a spoon. Place in freezer to set for approximately 20 minutes.
  • In the meantime, make the chocolate topping by adding coconut butter and coconut oil to a small saucepan. Combine over a low heat, adding the cacao powder and stirring. Remove from heat and stir the brown rice syrup into the cacao mix until well combined.
  • Pour your chocolate over the chilled slice and set in the freezer for another 10 minutes.
  • Remove from freezer and allow to stand for a few minutes.
  • Slice into squares or bars and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
