One of my favourite websites Oh She Glows (www.ohsheglows.com) always has yummy and healthy recipes for its readers.  Now, I don't usually stick straight to any recipe, as I like to experiment.   The following is no exception.  PLUS, often I don't have every exact ingredients on hand so improvisation is a necessity.  Yesterday I made a version of Oh She Glows's Almond Butter Chews.  http://ohsheglows.com/2011/01/05/5-minute-5-ingredient-no-bake-almond-butter-chews/




Nut Butter Chews (adapted from Oh She Glows)

1/4 cup all natural nut butter (I used cashew butter for one batch and peanut butter for the other)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 c puffed millet cereal (millet is trs healthy so this boosts the nutritional value of the recipe)
3 T barley malt
1-2 T of chopped chocolate (I used unsweetened)
2 T of chia seeds (I have also used sesame seeds and hulled hemp seeds in the past with great success)
2 T shredded unsweetened coconut

Mix and microwave (35-45 seconds) the nut butter, barley malt, and vanilla. Stir and add the rest of the ingredients.  Using wet hands, form balls and place them on a plate covered with parchment paper (which I LOVE). Freeze for 5 minutes before storing in a sealed container.  These keep in the freezer, and can be enjoyed straight from it or microwaved for a few seconds.

Ooh I think I'll have to try my own version of these. No barley malt for me (going gluten free) but agave would probably be an ok substitute? Is puffed millet cereal fairly easy to find? Is it more dense than puffed rice?

Agave would work, I believe, and a friend of mine tried maple syrup with success.  The original recipe used brown rice syrup, but I think that has gluten in it (??).  Puffed millet cereal is easy to find.  I got it at the bulk barn, Nature's Path brand.  Puffed rice would work as well, or any other puffed cereal.  The original recipe used rice crisps, which may be easier to locate.  The puffed millet isn't really dense.

Brown rice syrup should be gluten free I think. But I have agave on hand (thanks Costco 2 pack!) so I'll give that a go. Thanks hon!
