Cacao Pops

RECIPE BY AMY LEE FROM @amyleeactive

Looking for ways to healthify your breakfast? Ditch the sugar-laden, unhealthy, store-bought cereals and create your own! This Cacao Pops will definitely be a great motivation to wake up early.


  • Coconut Oil, 3 tbsp
  • Raw Cacao Powder, 3 tbsp
  • Maple Syrup, 3 tbsp
  • Water, 2 tbsp
  • Corn Thins, 4 cups (crushed, use vegan variant)
  • Hemp Protein Powder, 1 tbsp (optional)
  1. Preheat your oven to 160°C/320°F fan-forced.
  2. In a small pot over low heat stir together coconut oil, cacao powder, maple syrup and water very gently, just until the coconut oil has melted. Taste and adjust, you may prefer it sweeter.
  3. Add the puffed brown rice to a large mixing bowl, pour over the cacao mixture and stir gently until all the rice is well coated. 
  4. Transfer the chocolatey rice, spread apart as much as possible to two lined baking trays and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven, immediately stir gently with a spoon so that the rice doesn’t stick together, and leave to cool before transferring to a large glass jar for storage. Keeps for up to 1 month, and delicious served with a sliced banana and cold milk for breakfast!
  5. Don't forget to serve this in your favorite Coconut Bowls for an extra treat!
