Healthy vegan Cacao Almond Butter Crispy Treats are made with puffed 7 grain cereal, almond butter, found cacao powder and a boatload of  healthy omega 3-powered seeds- chia, sunflower and pumpkin. A delicious chocolatey fix, full of nutritious ingredients.



Toast the puffed cereal, pumpkin and sunflower seeds in a 375 F oven until crispy, about 20 minutes, stirring halfway through.  Place in a bowl along with other seeds.

Heat the almond butter, honey (or other sweetener),coconut oil, vanilla and salt in a small pot until melted and well combined. Turn heat off , then stir in cacao powder and cinnamon and quickly pour over the cereal seed mixture and mix well.

Place in a parchment lined 8 x 8 baking dish, and press down firmly with a spatula to create a uniform thickness. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.

Flip onto a cutting board, remove parchment and cut into 16, two-inch squares. Cover and store in the fridge.


Toasting the puffed cereal beforehand ensures a nice crispy texture.
