  • 20 g coconut oil
  • 110 g maple syrup
  • 100 g puffed rice
  • 70 g ground almonds
  • 75 g dried cherries or other dried fruit
  • 40 g raisins
  • 50 g dairy free chocolate chips optional


  • Grease a 20x30cm baking tray and line with baking paper.
  • Heat 20g coconut oil and 110g maple syrup together in a small pan over a low heat until the coconut oil has melted. Allow to cool a little.
  • Place 100g puffed rice, 70g ground almonds, 75g dried fruit eg cherries, 40g raisins, 50g chocolate chips (if using) in a large mixing bowl and stir.
  • Pour the coconut oil and syrup mixture over the top and stir well until thoroughly combined.
  • Tip into the prepared baking tray and press down well. You may find that it helps to cover the top with another sheet of baking paper and use a small rolling pin or glass to help smooth it down.
  • Freeze for an hour, then remove from the freezer and cut into squares or bars. Transfer to a Tupperware dish with a lid and store in the freezer.

  2. An adult will be able to eat these shortly after removing from the freezer but you may want to let them defrost slightly before serving to your child - not too long though or they won't hold together.
