Moreish Choc Spelt Seedy Crispies

sweetened with agave and rice syups

Here is a simple twist on one of my old favourites, now sweetened with agave and rice syrups. I’ve also used peppermint extract so adults are devouring it.  The seeds have a lovely ‘crispie’ like bite to them.

Makes 12 (cupcake size)

Goodies you’ll need to have:

  1. 250g dark chocolate
  2. 2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds
  3. 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
  4. 5 tablespoons agave syrup (85g approx)
  5. 1 tablespoon rice syrup
  6. 1.5 -2 teaspoons peppermint extract (or to taste)
  7. 230g spelt flakes and spelt puffs (half of each) or puffed rice
  8. Decorations of your choice (e.g. some extra seeds, dairy free / wheat smarties – I used a pack of whizzers which I found in a local health shop)

Putting it all together:

  • Half fill a saucepan with water and bring to the boil.  Once boiled turn heat off.
  • Break the chocolate into pieces and place into a bowl over the saucepan of just boiled water. Add the syrups and seeds and wait for chocolate to melt, stirring gently every now and then.
  • Add remaining ingredients and ensure they are fully coated.
  • Put 12 cupcake cases into a muffin tin.
  • Divide the chocolate mix equally into the cases.
  • Top off with decorations of your choice (or seeds and wheat-free / dairy free smarties).
  • If you want them to harden quickly place in the fridge for up to two hours, though the lovely sheen will be lost.  I mostly leave them in cool area in kitchen and hidden (or they’ll be ate by your devoted partner (in my case Tony)

Tip: I’m sure a mix of toasted nuts and some dried fruits would be nice in it also – do you use them?.  I sometimes add in marshmallows and the texture of the latter is loved.  Hope you like this quick and easy treat, love to hear how you get on. Talk soon.
