Cocoa Puffs

1 cup of  brown rice flour

1/2 cup of cocoa powder

1/4 tsp sea salt

2 tsp vanilla extract

1 chia egg (1 tbsp chia seed + 3 tbsp water. Mix to combine and let sit a few moments until gelatinous)

3-5 tablespoons of maple syrup (or honey if you prefer)


  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Add all your ingredients into a food processor except the maple syrup. You could also just use a hand mixer for this part on a low speed.
  3. Pulse the ingredients while slowly adding maple syrup.
  4. Pulse/mix until it comes together.  It will be crumbly but should form to shape as you work with it. (if not, add a little more syrup)
  5. Pinch into balls about the size of a pea.  You could go slightly larger but will make less cereal.  This part will take a little while.
  6. Bake for 12-13 minutes.
