This giveaway, which will entitle you to four free boxes of cereal produced by Assure Foods, is not focused solely on the Cocoa Crispy Brown Rice. Use the four coupons on any cereals you prefer (and they make a bunch of great gluten free ones!). Generally speaking, I'm not a fan of chocolate cereal, but this one changed my mind. After trying this cereal, I finally see the attraction: add some milk and you've got chocolate milk with bonus nibbling--sweet!
One of the best things, however, about this particular gluten-free cereal is its usefulness as baking ingredient. And for that reason, you must try these little cookies. They're similar to some chocolate energy bars I make which I'd always wanted to lighten up a bit. The crispy rice does the trick. SO easy to make.


1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup dried dates
4T water
1T agave syrup
2T cocoa
1 cup cocoa crispy brown rice cereal

Blend all but rice in food processor until a thick paste is formed. Empty all into a bowl, mix in rice, and form into about 15 small balls. Place on cookie sheet line with silicone baking sheet. Flatten balls into cookies. Bake 15-20 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Allow to cool and firm up before removing from baking pan.
