Cuisinicity Tip: If your child is gluten sensitive, Erewhon makes a certified gluten-free version so make sure to pick that one. Cuisinicity Tip 2: To fully benefit from the healthy nutritional value of the omega-3's in the flaxseed, it's best to grind it fresh, but it is fine to use ground flax meal, just keep it well closed and refrigerated. Cuisinicity Tip 3: you can also make these with natural unsweetened: almond butter, cashew butter or even sunflower butter if allergies are an issue.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup natural honey
  • 1 cup natural peanut butter (no added salt or sugar)
  • 1 cup Flaxmeal
  • 5 cups Crispy brown rice cereal (Erewhon®-No salt)
  • ⅓ cup bittersweet chocolate chips 60% cocoa (optional)
Instructions
  1. Place honey in a pan over low heat and cook for 1-2 minutes (no more than that! just enough to warm the honey so that it will blend in easily with the peanut butter).
  2. Turn off the stove and stir in peanut butter until melted. Stir until smooth.
  3. Put flaxmeal in a large bowl along with the crispy rice cereal and mix gently with your (clean!) hands.
  4. Pour the warm peanut butter/honey mixture in the bowl with the rice cereal and flaxmeal and stir well with a spoon. Stir in chocolate chips while still warm, if using.
  5. Pour mixture into an 8X12 pan and press down to flatten with slightly damp hands until nicely compact and flat throughout.
  6. Place in the refrigerator for 15 minutes and cut into 30 squares.
