Ingredients

  • 1/3 Cup Pumpkin Seed Butter
  • 3 Tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 Tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1/2 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 Cups Rice Puffs Cereal
  • 1/2 Cup Pumpkin Seeds
  • 30g Dark Chocolate (chopped)

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the pumpkin seed butter, maple syrup, ginger, and cinnamon. Gently fold in the rice puffs cereal and pumpkin seeds.
  2. Transfer and spread the mixture across a parchment-lined container or baking dish. Place another layer of parchment paper on top and firmly press into an even packed layer. (Note: If not compact enough, the bars may come out crumbly.)
  3. In the microwave, heat the dark chocolate in a small bowl for 30 seconds at a time, until melted. Drizzle overtop with a small spoon.
  4. Freeze for about 30 minutes and slice into bars. Enjoy!
