What do you do when your toddler starts napping for 3.5 hours? Make food! For him lol (well try to)
I whipped this up real quick (well had to whizz up the almonds first), and over estimated the tray needed.
It's quite yummy to pre fry the dessicated coconut actually, and I wasn't sure whether it was enough syrup and nut butter to glue everything together.
It worked anyway...
Got the original recipe here
Makes a full square 9 x 9 inch tray
- 3 cups rice crispies (gluten free)
- 1/3 cup dessicated coconut
- 1/3 cup slice almonds (I turned it to almond powder)
- 1/3 cup of peanut butter
- 1/3 cup of maple syrup
- Line an 8-inch square baking pan with wax paper, parchment or greased foil. Set aside for later.
- Bring a small skillet to medium heat. Add coconut. Stir until lightly browned and fragrant, about 3-5 minutes.
- Remove from heat and pour into a large mixing bowl.
- Add in almonds and rice crispies.
- Stir until all three ingredients are well-mixed.
- In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, add peanut butter and maple syrup. Whisk until well incorporated. Stir occasionally, heating until this mixture begins to bubble.
- Remove from heat and carefully pour over the dry mixture.
- Stir and fold until well-incorporated. Pour into the prepared baking pan.
- Using a rubber spatula, smooth the rice crispy treats into an even, tightly packed layer.
- Chill in the freezer for 30-40 minutes.
- Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer for up to 1 week.
