Caveman Cuisine: Rubble Stones


If you missed my previous rant on the preposterous Post cereal "Fruity Pebbles", I highly encourage you to check it out (see "Flint Chips").

Otherwise, here's the executive summary. A caveman on the front of a cereal box is bogus and makes me want to smash something with a club.

Now that we're all on the same page, this recipe is focused on taking down "Cocoa Pebbles", so without further ado, I give you Rubble Stones...

Actually, there is some more ado. Check out what you'll find in the average spoonful of Cocoa Pebbles:

INGREDIENTS: RICE, SUGAR, POLYDEXTROSE (SOURCE OF FIBER), HYDROGENATED VEGETABLE OIL (COCONUT AND PALM KERNEL OILS), COCOA (PROCESSED WITH ALKALI), SALT, CARAMEL COLOR, ARTIFICIAL AND NATURAL FLAVOR, BHA (TO HELP PROTECT FLAVOR).

Wow, that sounds really delicious! (By "delicious" I mean disgusting.)

Now, here's what I put into Rubble Stones:

INGREDIENTS: 1/4 CUP ORGANIC SHREDDED COCONUT, 2 TBSP DRY ROASTED MACADAMIA NUTS, 1 TBSP CACAO NIBS, 1 TBSP ORGANIC WHITE CHOCOLATE OR PURE COCOA BUTTER (CHOPPED).

You see what I did there?  I used real foods (including unprocessed cacao) that don't require "natural" or "artificial" flavors, "caramel color" (whatever that is), or BHA to "protect flavor".  I topped the whole thing off with some real cinnamon, a generous glug of full fat organic coconut milk and a hearty splash of unsweetened almond milk.

If Rubble Stones don't get your rocks off, I'll give you a full refund.*

  1. Great idea! I thought about what I had and came up with using almond flour and vanilla protein powder, add enough almond milk to make it a wet paste and then add in chopped walnuts, coconut chips and cacao nibs. Stir and indulge! Of course, add more almond or coconut milk if you're into a more liquidy concoction, but this works well for me. =]
