Prep time: 5-10 min
Cook time: 0
Cooling: 15-30 min
- 4 – 5 cups of your favorite gluten-free and/or vegan cereal (square shaped)
- 2 teaspoons organic coconut oil
- ½ cup chocolate chips (or vegan chocolate chips)
- ½ cup organic peanut butter (or substitute with almond butter)
- ½ cup Original Superfood Creamer®
- ½ cup Chocolate Mint Superfood Creamer®
Bowl, sheet pan, parchment paper
- Place the cereal in a large mixing bowl and set aside. Start with 4 cups, as you can always add more cereal if needed.
- In a saucepan, over low heat, mix together the nut butter, chocolate chips and coconut oil. Stir the mixture until smooth and melted.
- Remove the chocolate mixture from the stove and pour it over the cereal in the large bowl.
- With a spoon, gently stir everything together until the cereal is covered with the chocolate mixture and it is evenly distributed. You may need to add your other cup of cereal at this time. Ensure all cereal pieces are thinly coated.
- Line your sheet pan with parchment paper and spread the cereal/chocolate mixture evenly, on top, so they are not touching. Let the cereal mixture cool completely.
- In a bowl, mix together the Laird Superfood creamers. Sprinkle half of this mixture over the cereal mixture at this time. Now add cereal mixture to large mixing bowl, and add in the rest of the creamer mix. With your spoon, gently toss until all of the creamer mix is evenly distributed throughout the cereal mix.
- No need to refrigerate. Store leftovers in a sealed container and happy snacking!
