Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups whole grain puffs cereal
  • 3/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 cup dark chocolate, melted
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup crushed almonds

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

 

2. Place the cereal onto a baking sheet and into the oven to toast for about 8 minutes. Remove and set aside.

 

3. Place the almond butter and the honey into a small saucepan and heat to combine. Add a pinch of salt and pour the almond mixture into the bowl with the cereal. Stir to combine.

 

4. Using a small ice cream scoop, form the cereal mixture into small balls and place onto a parchment-lined sheet pan.

 

5. Place the melted chocolate into a medium-sized bowl and stir in the coconut oil. Take each of the cereal balls and dip into the chocolate with a fork and then place back onto the sheet pan. Top with the crushed almonds and set aside to let the chocolate harden. Serve.
