Healthy Choc Pops

 Untitledfacebookzinstagramzpinterestz

If your kiddies love Coco Pops or similar they will love these! These Healthy Choc Pops are something I have been wanting to bring to life for quite some time but never had a reason to (I already have way too much food in my kitchen most days!). These evolved from my Healthy Chocolate Crackles recipe I posted at the beginning of this year.

Bec and I were busily working away on The Breakfast Issue (released today!) of The 4 Blades Magazine and I decided to include this as a last minute addition and I am so glad I did. These are so easy, made of delicious ingredients and so much cheaper than store bought. My kiddies get “Monkey Pops” as we call them on Christmas Day as a special treat so they were so excited to try these the other morning. “Is it Christmas mum?!?!” I will be making these come December rather than buying.

If you are looking for more breakfast ideas see my breakfast section of the blog or why not invest in a copy of The Breakfast Issue of the magazine? Do you struggle to find new breakfast ideas? The Breakfast Issue of The 4 Blades Magazine is packed full of ideas to suit everyone whether you are wanting something easy, delicious and straight forward to something elegant to impress your guests.
