In my quest to say NO to Kelloggs - the LCM bar had to be revamped. So I came up with this is an "Anti-LCM' bar, Naughty Naturopath Mum style!
What You Will Need:
A big mixing bowl
A baking tray and baking paper
4 cups of puffed rice (I get mine by the scoop from my healthfood store - much better than the normal rice bubbles)
2 cups of desiccated coconut
1/4 cup of chia seeds
1/2 cup of coconut oil
1 cup of rice malt syrup
1/4 cup of cacao
NOTE: You can substitute rice malt syrup with RAW honey - make sure it's a nice candied or thick honey. You can use less and it will still hold together - this will be a much sweeter version than the rice malt syrup version. 😉
Whack all dry ingredients in a big mixing bowl.
Melt the coconut oil and rice malt syrup over a low heat (don't let it get too hot, just so you can stir together and then take off heat) and add to bowl of dry ingredients.
Moosh (yes, technical term) it around with your hands until it's well combined.
Press into a lined baking tin, so it's at least 1cm thick and flatten with your hands.
Pop in fridge to set and slice into bars when ready. Store in the fridge.
Voila - it's that easy, and so much better for your kids than an LCM bar!
PS. You might like them yourself - big kids in this house are quite partial to them! 😉
I hope you and your kids enjoy these bars as much as my family do! They make great lunchbox treats but please pop a freezer block in with them as they do need to be kept cold or keep them as a treat for afternoon tea.
