Oat Cookie Bites

Oat Cookie Bites

 

If you're looking for a scrummy sweet treat that's healthy and packed with goodness then give these a whirl. 

Delicious in the lunchbox or as a morning / afternoon snack, these Oat Cookie Bites are full of fibre and antioxidants.

I've chosen to use Cacao Nibs in them for extra magnesium and antioxidants, but have drizzled a little dark chocolate over the top to balance the bitterness of the Cacao. If you'd prefer something more simple, replace the Cacao Nibs with Dark Chocolate Chips. 

 

Oat Cookie Bites

Prep time   10 minutes
Fridge Time   30 minutes to chill

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 cup desiccated Coconut
  • 3 Tablespoons of Dark Chocolate Chips or Cacao Nibs
  • 2 Tablespoons of Tahini or Nut Butter (I used Almond Butter)
  • 2 Tablespoons of Maple Syrup
  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon 
  • 2 Teaspoons of Vanilla Extract
  • 2-3 Tablespoons of water (enough so the balls become sticky)

 

METHOD:

1.  Place all ingredients in a food processor. Pulse to blend, adding water slowly until dough forms a chunky consistency.

2.  Roll into balls. Why not try using the Rice Ball - perfect for making bliss balls minus the mess.

3.  Optional - drizzle the top with a little melted dark chocolate.

4.  Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to chill and set.

5.  Store in the fridge, or you can freeze once set in an airtight container or zip-lock bag, and pull out as you are ready to add them to the lunchbox.
