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 :) INGREDIENTS: 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 DIRECTIONS: 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. 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. Enjoy :) RECIPE NOTES: 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 want to use this dough for other treats I suggest to check out my Homemade Cereal Berry Pop-Tarts or my Homemade Cereal Blueberry Pop-Tarts! RECIPE CARD: If you make it let me know! :)
