Goji, Maca & Caramel Puffed Rice Slice

This has to be one of the easiest recipes on my blog for a delicious sweet snack packed full of goodness. Thanks to Creative Nature sending me some of their superfood goodies, this features their maca powder, chia seeds and goji berries combined with a date and nut butter caramel plus the light, crunchy texture of puffed rice. Make a batch and keep in the fridge or freezer for when sugar cravings strike – these are sure to satisfy a sweet tooth.


Ingredients:

  • 100g dates, soaked in hot water
  • 4 tablespoons nut butter (I used Meridian cashew butter)
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup (I used Indigo Herbs)
  • 1 teaspoon Creative Nature maca powder
  • 1 tablespoon Creative Nature chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 30g puffed rice (I used Rude Health)
  • 30g Creative Nature goji berries

Get making!

  1. Drain the dates but keep the water. Place in a food processor along with the nut butter, maple syrup, maca powder and 3 tablespoons of the water. Blend well until a paste forms. Add a little more water if needed.
  2. Stir in the chia seeds, cinnamon, puffed rice and goji berries and mix well so everything combines and sticks together.
  3. Tip into a 20cm lined tin and press down firmly. Freeze for at least 2 hours – then when ready to serve, remove and cut into slices. Enjoy!

Keep any remaining slices in the freezer for up to 1 month or in the fridge for 1 week.
