Shredded Wheat Squares


Shredded wheat squares

This is a great way to turn an unwanted, unloved box of Shredded Wheat into a far tastier snack. I made them with my daughter so a great bonding activity while the school holidays are STILL on. I spied the recipe on the back of the box then tweaked it marginally for healthier ingredients and a slightly easier method.

What you need:

2.4 cups of shredded wheat (small cereal size), broken up

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup coconut sugar

1/4 cup runny honey

1/4 cup coconut nectar

3/4 cup raisins

Cooking spray

Method:

Spray a baking tray with a little olive oil spray to grease it.

Break up the shredded wheat by breaking each little piece with your thumb. Add the raisins to these.

Take a pan and over a low heat, combine your sugar, honey, peanut butter and coconut nectar. AS SOON AS it is bubbling and runny, mix quickly with the shredded wheat and raisins. You must act quickly otherwise the liquid will harden again. Heat again if this is the case. This is tricky as it doesn't seem like there is enough liquid, but do persevere.

Then quickly press it into the tray, which again is difficult, but just keep pressing. As the mixture cools, you can use your hands, which is slightly easier.

Allow to cool then cut into squares. These keep well in the fridge in an airtight box for a few days.

Makes 12
