RECIPE: Healthy Puff-io Squares



As you are all well aware, we are a family of snackers. We love to pack our fun filled days with just as many deliciously fun things to eat. That, and the fact that if we don’t, Sofia Marie will not eat. Everything much be made fun, and resemble something we have already approved of. I stumbled across a chocolaty snack that was put out there by Jen, the genius behind the blog Mama. Papa. Bubba., I made a few adjustments to ensure Sofia would sink her teeth in without any coaxing. Adding Cheerios to the Kamut Puff ratio gave her some reassurance that at least ONE of the ingredient she would approve of and therefore dive right in.

Between Sofia Marie and my husband, I’m pretty certain they will keep me busy making batches of these babies on a weekly basis. They are just heavenly. And the fact that they are a healthy alternative to what you can and do buy down your boxed snack aisle, I will have no problem producing and feeding them to my family for those times that need something sweet. And maybe, just maybe I might slip a few squares into my mouth.


Recipe: Healthy Puff-io Squares
Original Recipe: Mama. Papa. Bubba.

1/2 cup Brown Rice Syrup
1/2 cup Nutella
1 tbsp Maple Syrup
3 tbsp Coco Powder
2 tbsp Coconut Oil
2 cups of Cheerios
2 1/2 cups of Kamut Puffs

Measure out your Brown Rice Syrup, Nutella, Maple Syrup, Coco Powder and Coconut Oil, heating in a large pot over medium heat, keeping an eye to stir constantly. When the mixture is hot, and about to bubble, add your Vanilla. and give it another stir to incorporate.

Remove from heat, and stir in your Kamut Puffs and Cheerios. Mix until completely covered.

Dump the entire mixture into a parchment lined pan, get your hands damp with water and press down firmly to ensure the mixture covered the entire bottom of the pan with no gaps. The water on your hands will ensure the sticky mixture won’t stick to your hands and make this task easy.

Pop them into your fridge, and they will have set up in about 30 minutes {more or less dependent on how thick you made yours}. At this point you can pull them from the pan, cut into squares, enjoy and store.

PS: I made a few minor changes to my recipe. Jen, from Mama. Papa. Bubba. used cashew butter but instead, I chose Nutella; we had it in the house and it sounded like a perfect match. The concept is their with the nut protein so why not. I also added Cheerios to mine, instead of 100% Kamut Puffs; However I’m certain both ways are just as yummy.
