These almond butter chocolate cereal power balls require one pan and no baking to make. They take the Herbivore Super Cereal in Vanilla Pecan and turn it into a chewy snack / dessert. Whilst it may seem counter intuitive to take an expensive cereal and mix it with almond butter, rice syrup and cocoa to create a snack, I figured that the cereal is the same price of a bag of nuts / seeds. It’s also packed with nutrients from sprouted buckwheat, quinoa, chia seeds and more – so you’re creating nutritious balls of deliciousness.


You don’t have to use the super cereal used here, you can substitute it with a granola, muesli or other cereal for the same results.

The mixture is delicate so don’t worry if you can’t get them into perfect balls. I used rice syrup to bind the ingredients as it’s very sticky. Honey may work as an alternative as it has a similar consistency to rice syrup.
