2 cups of cereal ( I used Nature's Path Organic Sunrise Crunchy Maple cereal )
1 1/2 cup of gluten-free rolled oats
optional additions: sunflower seeds, dried fruit, mini chocolate chips (1/4 cup of any or all)
Mix the above ingredients in a mixing bowl and get the fudge ready to pour in and stir...
In a saucepan, mix on low heat:
1/2 cup of sunbutter (sunflower seed butter, or other nut butter will do)
1/4 cup of agave nectar, or a touch more if you want them sweeter
1/4 cup of non-dairy milk ( I used So Delicious coconut milk )
2 TB of dark cocoa powder
After to mix the above ingredients on low-heat and they have become like a fudge sauce, pour the hot syrup over the cereal mix in the bowl. Mix well and pour into a greased (coconut oil or palm shortening) 8x8 pan. Press the cereal down kinda like you are making rice crispy treats. Then, cover and put in the fridge for at least 2 hours, but you can do more. (You can try the freezer to speed up chill time). Then when chilled and stiff, cut into square pieces and serve.
Pretty darn easy if you ask me. And a nice treat for a busy week of running around. Whole grains, and healthy fats, and a touch of cocoa will keep you moving for sure.
I better get back to working on the plants for the garden, so I can have lots of greens and veggies this summer. In the meantime, try and remember to take deep breaths and relax this month. It's a busy one! I think I am telling this more to myself than anyone else :)
Much love to you today as always!
