  • 200 g Coconut oil
  • 110 g Cocoa powder
  • 8 tbsp Maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp Vanilla extract
  • 90 g Rice cereal
  • 50 g Dried cranberries
  • 0.5 tsp Ground ginger
  • 0.5 tsp Ground cinnamon


  • Put the coconut oil, cocoa powder, vanilla extract and maple syrup in a pan and gently heated until melted.
  • Add to a large bowl with the rice cereal and add the dried cranberries, ginger and cinnamon and stir well.
  • Layer some baking paper in a dish and pour in the mixture, pressing down so it goes to the sides. Put in the freezer for at least 30 minutes before cutting.



  • Keep these in the freezer and cut off a slice as and when you want some. This is great for portion control.
  • Not a fan of cranberries? You can use dried cherries instead.
  • Kids love making these, so get them involved and let them stir everything together.
  • Add a little extra flavour to these by stirring in some orange or peppermint extract.
