Healthy Chocolate Crackles

Does your school use the traffic light system for foods?  Like a traffic light, foods are put in different colour categories and help parents (and kids) make healthier choices.

GREEN ‘Have plenty’ Encourage and promote these foods and drinks in the lunchbox.
AMBER ‘Select carefully’ Do not let these foods and drinks dominate choices and avoid large serve sizes.
RED ‘Occasional’ Limit the availability of these foods and drinks to no more than two occasions per term

I think its a great idea, and as a sweet tooth, I love the challenge of finding healthy alternatives to popular sweet treats.  These chocolate crackles are sweet and delicious but also good for you!

You’ll need: 1 cup puffed millet (or buckwheat/puffed wheat), I cup puffed rice, 1/2 cup desiccated coconut, 2-3 tsp cacao (or cocoa), 3/4 cup coconut oil, 2 tbsp honey (or rice syrup/agave syrup).

Mix dry ingredients in a bowl.

If you live in a cool climate and the coconut oil is solid, melt over a low heat.  Add honey to oil and mix thoroughly.

Add liquid to dry ingredients and stir well.

Spoon the mix into patty pans and refrigerate until solid.

Quick, easy, healthy and delicious.  A green light food pretending to be a red one 🙂
