These little yummies don’t look like anything special, but once you have them, you usually can’t stop eating them. The first time I made them for my mom she jokingly called be “devil child” for making something so yummy and easy to snack on. Its caramel popcorn meets rice krispie treat. The camarel portion can absolutely be used to make some heavenly caramel popcorn!
I’m posting the healthier version, but also the more pricey and a bit more rare ingredients recipe. But, if you go with that I put in parenthesizes, it will turn out just fine and cheaper. Coconut oil acts like vegan butter, and coconut sugar acts like brown sugar in this recipe. So, easily switched. Also, it doesn’t have to be puffed millet, it can be puffed rice, puffed kamut, puffed wheat, or even a rice krispie type cereal.
Caramel Puffed Millet Treats
1/2 c coconut sugar (can use brown sugar)
1/2 c brown rice syrup
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla extract
Cut the heat & mix in the soda. There will be a chemical reaction when it mixes, so it will bubble up and become a lighter brown. Then mix in the vanilla.
