  1. 1/2 Cup 99th Monkey Organic Almond Butter
  2. 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Essence
  3. 1 Cup Rice Puffs*
  4. 3 TBSP Brown Rice Syrup/Rice Malt Syrup
  5. 1-2 TBSP Cacao Nibs*
  6. Fair trade Cacao to coat - optional
  1. 1. Stir almond butter, syrup, and vanilla essence in a bowl. Microwave for 30-45 seconds. Stir well and add in the cacao nibs straight away so they melt into the mixture.
  2. 2. Add in the rice crisp cereal and mix all ingredients thoroughly.
  3. 3. Wet your hands with water and roll the mixture into balls. Keep your hands wet whilst rolling to ensure the mixture doesn't stick to your hands.
  4. 4. Dust the balls in cacao - this gives them an extra cacao hit. This part is optional, and you could roll them in dark chocolate if you would rather them sweeter (simply melt 1/4 cup dark chocolate with 1/2 tsp coconut oil).
  5. 5. Place the rolled balls onto baking paper or a plate and freeze for 5 minutes.
  6. 6. You can store these in a container in the fridge - they are best eaten cold. Alternatively, they will last for a month in the freezer. (Not that they are going to last that long - we promise!)
  1. *Just like all our recipes, you can substitute the Almond Butter for any of our other nut butters. Our Pistachio and Almond Butter works well with this recipe also.
  2. *Find a cereal with the least sugar content and minimal ingredients. We use the Freedom Foods brand as it's gluten free and has the least amount of sugar.
  3. *Chopped Dark Chocolate chunks also work if you don't have any Cacao Nibs
