    Tasty alternative to the lcm bars from shops. I processed the date and coconut oil mix for about 5minutes on 60 degrees to make it smoother and easier to mix into rice puffs. I made them thinner and they have held the bar shape when cut straight from fridge

    We loved this recipe. I used Tupperware silicon cupcake moulds to push them into and it worked brilliantly - popped out easily and i didn't have problems with crumbling to cut. Perfect size for little hands and lunchboxes.

  • HI, has anyone frozen these

    Submitted by thegalleyminx on 14. April 2016 - 12:27.

    HI, has anyone frozen these and then let them defrost in the lunchbox? Do you think it's possible to do so? I am planning to make these with puffed millet for my one year old baby.

  • thanks so much for sharing

    Submitted by annaw@modisto.com.au on 13. April 2016 - 19:43.

    thanks so much for sharing this healthy recepie. I usually do a LCM bar but with a nut butter, not so lunch box friendly unfortunatelly. So I was happy to find the date option. the only issue I had was that my date mixture and coconut  once mixed and warmed seperated and the date mixture looked like a clump sitting in the oil. I still managed to get it all into the rice, but it wasn't easy and a lot of it crumbled once cut. I used fresh good quality  dates and followed all the steps. Any thoughts and advise would be appreciated as they did taste amazing and the kids loved them! 

    Thank you  tmrc_emoticons.)

  • Delicious! I put the mixture

    Delicious! I put the mixture into a silicone mini cupcake pan instead of worrying about slicing & it worked perfectly!

    Tasted great - but didn't hold together as a bar once cut.  My daughter renamed them Lcm crumble - but asked for more tmrc_emoticons.)   Any ideas why, anyone? 

    It could be because the coconut oil melted if it is warm weather. It is important to mix the puffed rice very thoroughly with the date mixture, and press very firmly in the tin. Sorry they crumbled for you. :/

    Submitted by Jenpal on 8. August 2015 - 17:07.

    After reading your comment I pushed it down REALLY hard in the tin then used the back of a spoon to smooth and push down even more.

    we are in a hot climate so not sure how they will hold together once warmed up in the lunch box but straight out of fridge they are pretty well stuck together.

    Submitted by mummyt on 9. June 2015 - 11:48.

    I made today, and my children loved them.  I added some shredded coconut and desicated coconut to the mix too.  Very quick and easy.  I also added extra coconut oil so it wasn't as dry.

    Submitted by feeby on 5. February 2015 - 13:15.

    Made this this afternoon, really needed to mix with hands to get a good coverage, also I didn't have coconut oil so I subsituted butter. It has worked out well, tastes nice and won't last long in in my home. Will be making it again for the kids lunch boxes
