Preparation

  1. Combine the buckwheat flour, oat flour, coconut flour, cacao powder, protein powder, baking powder, baking soda, and stevia in a large bowl and stir together, eliminating any clumps formed from the cacao or coconut flour.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the maple syrup, milk, and vanilla extract until they are all combined.
  3. Pour the liquid mixture into the chocolate mixture and stir together, using your hands if necessary. The ingredients should form a dough.
  4. Break off tennis ball size pieces of the dough and place on a sheet of parchment paper. Cover with a second sheet of parchment paper and roll out using a rolling pin until about 1-centimeter thick. Remove the top layer of parchment paper, score the dough, and then place on a baking sheet. Repeat for the remainder of the dough.
  5. When all the dough is rolled out, place in the oven, preheated to 375°F, and bake for 25-35 minutes, or until crispy. The cereal will crisp up some once it is cooled so be sure not to burn it even if it doesn’t seem like it is getting very crispy.
  6. Once baked, remove from the oven and cool on a rack.
  7. Store in an airtight jar at room temperature.

Notes

Store in a cool jar.
