Sugar free LCM bars {thermomix}

sugar free LCM bars

There is nothing like a little sweet treat that is reasonably healthy too. These days, I am trying to find sugar alternatives. Lets just say, I am testing the theory that extra sugar makes toddlers go even more batty.

I have been meaning to make these LCM bars for ages. And, I was totally surprised by how easy they are.

The original recipe, which you can find here, calls for a few extra ingredients which I decided to leave out. And they are super yum!


1/2 cup Rice Malt Syrup
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 cups puffed rice (or rice bubbles)
Pinch of salt

1. Line a slice tray with baking paper
2. Add Rice Malt Syrup, Vanilla Extract and Butter and cook for 3 minutes/ 90’C / Speed 2.
3. As the blades are still turning, add 4 cups of puffed rice, 1 cup at a time, Speed Gentle / No heat to combine for roughly 40 seconds. Add a pinch of salt at the end.
4. Pour into lined slice tray and press down evenly.
5. Place in fridge until cooled completely and set.


Do you love a little LCM bar too?

    What a great recipe! No Thermomix in these parts but can I make this without? (Trying so hard to convince the Hubby I need one!)

      Jody you can totally make these without a thermomix…. Just melt the rice malt syrup, butter and vanilla essence in a pot. Then simply add the rice bubbles and stir. Too easy!! And line the same way into a dish and pop into the fridge :)

    Yum! They look so easy to make! I don’t have a Thermomix either but I’m glad it’s just as simple to make them without one.

    I’m giving these a go. My son LOVES LCM bars he goes through two a day sometimes and I’ve been thinking about making my own so it’s not as high in sugar. Thanks for the recipe

    My kids don’t like the LCM bars oddly enough. The cornflake ones with chocolate on though are a favourite.
