Wholefoods Chocolate Crackle Recipe

I really struggled to title this post and in the end I’m still not 100% with happy with calling them wholefoods chocolate crackles. It sounds so awkward and ugly.



I tossed up between choosing terms such as ‘healthy’ and ‘sugar free’, afterall there is sugar in them,  it just happens to come in the form of honey.


And the word ‘healthy’ differs in meaning depending on who you are and what information you agree with.


Some people don’t agree that coconut oil is healthy as only recently it was avoided as it is a form a saturated fat.


Others are still looking for low fat (blegh! And to think I used to be one of them!) while others still think of food in terms of numbers.


Anyway it seems maybe I’ve just been thinking too deeply about what should really just be titled DELICIOUS.  And for the record in my books they’re all good because they contain whole foods and I know everything that went into them.  Oh and they pass the toddler test so that’s all that matters isn’t it?


chocolate crackles



2 cups of puffed rice (health food ailse)

1 cup shredded coconut

1/3 cup coconut oil

1/3 cup honey

3 tablespoons cocoa or cacao



Mix rice and coconut in a large bowl.

Melt coconut oil and honey and mix through cocoa.

Mix together and spoon into muffin cases. * If you prefer your crackles to be covered more just add a couple of extra spoonfuls of oil, honey and cocoa.

Refrigerate until set.

Try and hide them from the toddler so you get to eat some yourself!
