Easy Sugar-Free Puffed Wheat Squares


Ahhhhhh, Puff Wheat Squares. These bad boys take me right back to the good ol' days of childhood of no responsibilities and so much fun.


A recent craving for these chocolatey goodies inspired me to create a healthier version of this classic without the high fructose corn syrup and with a couple extra additions for added nutrition.


And I must say, they were just as satisfying.


Give them a try and let me know what you think. :)



Ingredients


3 cups medjool dates, pitted⁣

1/3 cup coconut oil⁣

1/2 cup dark unsweetened chocolate chunks ⁣

6 cups puffed kamut or puffed wheat⁣

1/2 cup hemp hearts⁣

1/4 cup chia seeds⁣

1/2 tsp sea salt⁣

Optional toppings⁣

1/3 cup peanut butter + 1 tsp coconut oil, melted⁣

Coconut flakes⁣

Mac nuts ⁣

Cacao Nibs⁣


Directions

1) Over medium heat, melt coconut oil & dark chocolate. Remove from heat, add sea salt.⁣

2) Add pitted dates & melted chocolate mixture to food processor or good quality blender. Blend until smooth-ish.⁣

3) Add mixture to large mixing bowl & add puffed kamut, hemp hearts & chia seeds. Mix until well blended. Mixture will be thick, so you may need to use some muscle power. You can also use your hands to knead mixture together. ⁣
