Homemade Dark chocolate & maple star cereal
It's officially summertime!! So my favorite time of the year.
Well.. probably not this year, but we'll see.
Anyway I think it's time to share with you some fresh breakfast idea and what's better than a bowl of cereal with cold milk? A bowl of homemade dark chocolate & maple star cereal with cold milk!!
Yesterday I come up with this easy idea and I totally enjoyed it.
The dough of this cereal is actually the same as the one I used for homemade pop-Tarts! The texture is more like a cookie but it's not soft or chewy, it's crunchy and it doesn't get soggy very quickly. Also, it tastes like maple syrup and dark chocolate. I loved it.
If you want to make it you can check out the recipe below :)
104g coconut oil
161g maple syrup or agave nectar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
256g all purpose flour
90g rolled or quick oats
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
--- TOPPINGS ---
Cream coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla and egg, with an electric mixer.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, oats, salt, and baking powder.
Add dry ingredients to your creamed ingredients, a little at a time, with an electric mixer, until it is well incorporated.
Wrap the dough in plastic wrap, and place in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
Once chilled, roll out on wax paper, using flour where necessary so it doesn’t stick to your rolling pin, or the counter.
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
Cut out the dough into small stars and transfers them on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
Bake for about 5 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden around the edges.
Let them cool on the baking sheet.
Repeat from 7 until the dough is finished (or until you are tired of it because with this amount of dough you will end up with at least 200+ stars..) *
Melt dark chocolate in the microwave or on a double boiler and glaze the top of half of the stars.
If the dough starts to fall apart put it back in the fridge to chill and then it will be easier to work.
You can freeze the dough for a month or so.
If you make it let me know! :)
