Healthy LCM Bars
After a hit with my rice puff slice at my Yoga Pose Alignment and Adjustment Workshop. I've had special requests to share this recipe with you all.
I remember having these LCM bars as a very special treat, or only when I could afford to buy them myself. Thank you mum for making us eat healthy, most of the time ;)
So, here is the recipe I created, adjusting the original recipe on the copha packet to a slightly healthier version.
They are super simple to make and very tasty for kids and adults of all ages.
HEALTHY LCM BARS
4 Cups Rice Puffs
1 Cup Desiccated Coconut
1 Cup Coconut Sugar
3 Tablespoons Maple Syrup (or honey)
½ Teaspoon Vanilla Essence (optional)
Line a square baking tray with baking paper (avoids it sticking to pan)
Place copha in small saucepan to melt.
Turn off heat; add honey & the vanilla to melted copha.
Combine rice, coconut and coconut sugar in a large bowl and mix.
Pour melted ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients and mix well.
Once combined, pour contents into a lined baking tin/container and compress firmly using an extra piece of baking paper or similar.
Place in fridge to set for a couple hours or overnight.
Remove from tin and cut to size.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge and enjoy.
This snack is high in fat and should be eaten in moderation.
You can make them sweeter by adding more honey/maple.
Will keep well for up to a week, no longer.
Copha holds a lot better than coconut oil when left in room temperature upon serving
