The ingredients can be combined depending on the tolerability. I tried homemade chocolate for this recipe. However, if that’s too expensive or too complicated to get the ingredients, you can also buy readymade chocolate. For the flakes, you can choose common cornflakes or spelt flakes or glutenfree flakes and combine them with either pecans or almonds or walnuts. You can easily vary the recipe according to your preferences, isn’t it great? As always, my recipe does not contain any industrial sugar or plenty of ingredients.
Extra-hint for sensitive bellies: Spelled contains significantly less FODMAP’s than wheat but is not considered low-FODMAP. Therefore the individual tolerance should be tested. Small quantities (2-3 pieces) are usually well tolerated.
Preparation time in min: 15
Calories per serving: 70
Ingredients (for 30 Choco Crossies):
80 g spelled flakes
40 g pecans
Pinch of cinnamon
Pinch of nutmeg
For the homemade chocolate
120 g cocoa butter
80 g cocoa powder
90 g rice syrup
1. Place pecans in a blender and chop them roughly. Then add another half of the spelled flakes and chop it up for a short time. Now mix the ingredients with the remaining flakes, add cinnamon and nutmeg in a large bowl.
2. Now prepare the chocolate: Let the cocoa butter melt over low heat gradually in a water bath. Stir in the cocoa and syrup and then allow to cool briefly. Stir the chocolate into the mixture until the flames are evenly covered with chocolate.
3. Place small blobs of mixture on a baking sheet covered with baking paper. Let the chocolate blobs set, the best would be to put them in the fridge (but it works just as well at room temperature, it just takes a little longer).
4. Store the Crossies in a closable container in the refrigerator.

Frequently asked questions
I tried everything. But it is best not to eat at all. Do I take the strain off my gut?
In order to maintain an adequate supply of nutrients, to build up a rich microbiota as well as holistic health, a regular and symptom-oriented diet is necessary. The intestine and its great population need the right foods. Get a professional support along your way and always be patient. Exchange your ideas and wishes with your nutritionist. Or if you need some help, just don’t hesitate to contact me via the form.
I have no identified intolerances. Why do I still not tolerate fresh dairy products or fiber-rich foods?
Fresh dairy products contain higher levels of probiotics than usual, so they can briefly lead to lactose intolerance-like symptoms. The same is true for fiber-rich foods containing prebiotics. The intestine simply has to get used to the new population. Initially, you can relieve your stomach with a combination of vegetables and vegetable oils (such as linseed oil).
Cabbage, beans or fiber are bloating. Is there anything I can do against it?
A varied diet is important, including healthy fats. These relieve the intestine by ensuring that the food stays in the stomach for a longer time. Therefore always combine the meals with vegetable fats. But watch out – also the amount is important. Furthermore, frozen cabbage or beans are normally leading to less bloating.
