Cornflakes cakes are probably a childhood favorite to thousands of people, and I think it’s one little treat not made enough as adults. I guess it looks pretty sloppy and you couldn’t really serve them up at a dinner part, but that doesn’t make them any less easy and fun to make. These are my almost raw version of that classic. I like to add different seeds, superfoods, and nuts to make them that bit more interesting. You can really throw in anything you have on hand, and omit anything you don’t have, as long as you keep the amounts similar.

Preparation

  1. Gently heat the coconut butter and maple syrup together in a double boiler until the butter has melted.
  2. Sift in the cacao and stir until well combined to make a chocolate sauce
  3. Add all the remaining ingredients and stir until everything is well coated with the chocolate sauce
  4. Spoon mixture into cupcake or truffle cases, any size you prefer. I made mini bitesize Cornflake Cakes. Place in the fridge covered until set, usually about 30 minutes, and enjoy!

Notes

Can be made gluten-free if you purchase cornflakes that specify that they contain no gluten. Not all brands do!
