Healthy Rice Krispy Treat Recipe

My son starts preschool this week and I have been on the search for some healthy, fun, sugar free and nut free recipes to put in his lunchbox. 

Look at the ingredients they list on the packet of a LCM bar with NO EXTRA FLAVOURS. The banana and chocolate flavors were much worst. It has Rice Bubbles breakfast cereal (41%)(whole white rice, sugar, salt, barley malt extract, vitamins [vitamin C, niacin, riboflavin, thiamin, folate], minerals [iron, zinc oxide]), glucose, fructose, hydrogenated soyabean oil (antioxidants [320, 306, 304]), sugar, glucose solids, invert sugar, humectant (glycerol), gelatin, flavour, salt, emulsifiers (472e, 472a), skim milk powder.

There is no way I would put this in my sons lunch box SO here is my take. 

INGREDIENTS:
3 cups brown rice puffs (usually found in the macro isle, otherwise your local health food shop would have them) 
1/4 cup honey
1/3 cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup dates, pitted and soaked about 30 minutes
2 tablespoons chia seeds (optional) 
1/4 seeds of your choice, I used half pepitas half sunflower seeds.

STEPS:

Mix all the ingredients except the rice puffs in a food processor until a thick paste forms

Warm the paste up on the stove to make sure all the coconut oil has fully melted

Mix the paste into the rice puffs in a bowl (I used my fingers, it was the easiest way)

Press the mixture down into a line baking tray. You can use some glad wrap so it doesn’t stick to your hand if you want. 

Place it in the freezer for 20-30 minutes or until it’s fully set. 

Cut them up and enjoy. Store the leftovers in a container I the fridge.

I was searching for some healthy lunch box ideas on Instagram and this is one of the accounts that came up. Not even joking, white sandwich bread, Oreos, poppers (juice boxes for the Americas) pretzels and cookies. That’s just to mention a few. I couldn’t stop laughing. I guess healthy has different meanings to different people. 

Does anyone follow anyone good for ideas for kids lunch boxes?
