  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups Rice Bubbles or puffed rice
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries

  • 1/3 cup cacao (or cocoa)
  • 150g butter

    Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celsius and line a square or rectangle baking tin with baking paper. 

  • Step 2

    In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients and mix well.

    In a small saucepan, combine the honey and butter and mix over a low heat for approximately 5 minutes or until the butter has melted and the mixture has thickened slightly. Remove from heat and add the vanilla essence and cacao.

    Cool in the baking paper on a wire rack for 10 to 15 minutes. Cut into small bars.
