Homemade Dark chocolate & maple star cereal

Updated: Apr 13

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

  • 1 egg

  • 256g all purpose flour

  • 90g rolled or quick oats

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

--- TOPPINGS ---

  • Dark chocolate


  1. Cream coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla and egg, with an electric mixer.

  2. In a separate bowl, combine flour, oats, salt, and baking powder.

  3. Add dry ingredients to your creamed ingredients, a little at a time, with an electric mixer, until it is well incorporated.

  4. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap, and place in the fridge for at least 1 hour.

  5. Once chilled, roll out on wax paper, using flour where necessary so it doesn’t stick to your rolling pin, or the counter.

  6. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

  7. Cut out the dough into small stars and transfers them on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.

  8. Bake for about 5 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden.

  9. Let them cool on the baking sheet.

  10. 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..) *

  11. Melt dark chocolate in the microwave or on a double boiler and glaze the top of half of the stars.

  12. Enjoy :)
