Candied Puffed Cereal

I recently ordered two different cereals online: crunchy flax, and puffed millet.  The crunchy flax was a go on the first try, but he’s since turned it down.  Boo.  I’ll have to come up with a way to alter it to make it more to his liking.

Puffed millet smells and tastes a lot like popcorn.  It’s very small and light, like the little balls that shed from a sheet of styrofoam.  LOL  So I needed to do something with it to make it tastier and heavier.

This recipe does the trick.

I can already envision some alterations for variety…peanut butter and cocoa powder, brown sugar and cinnamon…   I bet the peanut butter and chocolate combo would be a candidate for the crunchy flax!

Candied Puffed Cereal

1/3 cup coconut oil or butter
1/2 cup maple sugar
1/4 cup real maple syrup
Pinch or two of pink himalayan salt
2 1/2 cups puffed cereal

Preheat oven to 300.   Put butter, sugar, syrup, and salt in a large sauce pan.  Heat the mixture on medium high.  Be sure to keep stirring.  Bring to a boil and allow it to boil for 2 minutes, without letting it burn!  It looks like the sugar is foamy and separate from the oil but no worry.  Pour over the 2 1/2 cups puffed millet.  Using a large wooden spoon, gently stir the puffed rice until all of the pieces are coated.  Spread the coated puffed millet onto a greased cookie sheet.
Bake for about 10-15 minutes.  Store leftovers in an airtight container.
