Ingredients

  • 2 cups 100% puffed rice cereal
  • 1⁄2 cup rolled oats
  • 1⁄4 tsp. salt
  • 1⁄2 cup coconut sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. honey
  • 2 tsp. water
  • 1 oz. unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 1 1⁄2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1⁄2 Tbsp. cocoa powder

Directions

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside. Combine puffed rice cereal, oats, and salt in a large bowl.
  • In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine the coconut sugar, honey, and water. Microwave for 1 minute, stirring every 10 seconds. The mixture will bubble up, but this is okay. After 1 minute, add the chopped chocolate and stir. Microwave for another 5 seconds or so until the chocolate is completely melted.
  • Add the vanilla extract and cocoa powder to the chocolate mixture. The mixture should look like a chocolate ganache. Quickly pour over the rice and oats mixture while it is still warm. Work quickly to stir and coat everything evenly.
  • Use an ice cream scoop to form the mixture into balls. Place the balls on the prepared baking sheet. Serve immediately, or store in a covered container.
