Today I wanted to do a little treat for the boys. We don’t give them rice bubbles for breakfasts because we like to make breakfasts sugar-free but I have a huge box of them in the cupboard left over from a birthday party snack. That, and the failure of homemade peanut butter that the kids won’t eat!
These are awesome little balls for a treat:
1 cup rice bubbles (I think you could use amaranth or corn puffs etc that are sugar free, on reflection too)
1/2 cup of oats
1/2 cup ground peanuts (whizzed in a food processor until paste like)
1/4 cup rice syrup
1/4 cup chia seeds
1 T raw cacao
The best thing about these is how child friendly it is to make. No heating, no ovens, nothing tricky about them. I have been missing cooking with the kids since we went all healthy 🙂 . This has made me realise I need to be creative in the ways we do food and still involve them even though we’re not doing buttery sugary cooking anymore!
*naww* how cute is he! Mix mix mix, then roll them up into balls and pop them in the fridge for a sweet, nutty, crunchy treat! Bet they won’t last a day 🙂
