Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup crunchy or creamy all natural almond butter
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed meal
  • 3 cups Cheerios
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 teaspoon coconut oil
  • sea salt, for sprinkling

Instructions

  1. Grease an 8x8 inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Heat medium saucepan over low heat and add in honey and almond butter. Stir frequently until smooth, creamy and warm. 
  3. Stir in flaxseed meal then transfer to a large bowl. Stir in Cheerios. 
  4. Transfer to prepared baking sheet and press to sides evenly with a rubber spatula to ensure bars are even. Then press very firmly down with your hands.
  5. To make the chocolate drizzle, place dark chocolate and coconut oil in a small microwave safe bowl and heat on high 30 seconds. Stir. If chocolate hasn't melted completely place in microwave again in 10 second intervals and stir until melted. 
  6. Drizzle or spread over bars however you like. Place pan in the freezer for 15 minutes to help cool bars and harden chocolate. 
  7. Thaw out a bit if necessary. Cut into 16 squares. Store at room temperature or in the fridge to help keep bars more intact. Enjoy!
