40g (1/3 cup) cocoa powder

80ml (1/3 cup) coconut oil

80ml (1/3 cup) rice malt syrup (or honey)

75g (3 cups) Cheerios or other cereal (I used unsweetened Cheerios)

Desiccated coconut, for sprinkling


1. Line a square baking dish with baking paper and set aside.

2. Melt the cocoa powder, coconut oil and rice malt syrup in a large saucepan or mixing bowl, on low heat, until smooth and combined. Add the Cheerios and mix through using a wooden spoon.

3. Transfer the crackle mix to your prepared dish, and press down to distribute evenly. Sprinkle the coconut over the top.

4. Set in the fridge overnight, or for at least 6 hours, before cutting into squares. Store in the fridge.
