No Bake Almond Butter Oatmeal Bites

Winter is Coming – No Bake Almond Butter Oatmeal Bites

Winter is coming, and so is the desire to sweeten my soul with some extra-lusciously, out-of-the-world snack. Therefore, I decided to book my snack way before the ‘actual’ winters. I have been doing this for a while now and believe you me; it requires a lot of patience with extra layers of FAT. Anyways, one day I just mixed a couple of ingredients to make my own recipe and Voila!

My very own NO BAKE ALMOND BUTTER OATMEAL BITES

I tried to alter my favorite cookie recipe (let it be a secret :p) but failed every time. These little no-bake bites are inspired by my big time ‘cookie flops’. But they extremely satisfy my sweet chocolate chippy cravings and I am sure yours will too.

So, I started with toasted oats, flaxseed, coconut oil, some walnuts and delicious roasted almond butter. I swapped some more ingredients so as to add little cheesiness to my buds: bye bye flour and brown sugar. I simply blend them up with sweet dates and maple syrup. Then I made 10 good-sized round bites from it and store them in the fridge until firm.

You can obviously make as much as you want but you will need a larger food processor from the one I have.

And there you go, a sweet delight that is simply heaven to taste buds.
