  • loaf pan or baking pan


  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup gluten free rice cereal or regular if gluten free isn't needed
  • pinch of salt


  • Melt coconut oil with cacao powder in small saucepan on low heat.  Add maple syrup, vanilla, and a pinch of salt and mix well.
  • Add rice cereal to a bowl and then add the chocolate mixture and mix well so that the cereal is completely covered.
  • Line a loaf pan or a square baking pan with parchment paper.  Pour in rice cereal and chocolate mixture and flatten into an even level.
  • Place in freezer for 20-30 minutes or until it is completely set.
  • Lift parchment paper out of pan and separate the bar from paper.  Cut into bars (of your choice of size) and enjoy!
  • Keep in freezer or fridge until ready to serve.


Cut into 9 inch bars or even smaller bite sizes!  
Store in fridge or freezer - they can get a little melty when warm so best to keep refrigerated until serving.
