Honey Almond Butter Bites!

July 24th, 2013

Need an afternoon pick me up? A twist on cake pops!

Ok so it's not exactly a cake pop, but it is a MUST try!

Honey almond butter bites, with a coconut crust. These little guys pack a powerhouse of protein thanks to the almond butter and chia seeds. A sweet and satisfying treat packed with nutrients! Next time your craving something sweet, try one of these instead!

The best part? NO baking! 

  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cup raw almond butter or cashew butter
  • 1 cup of raw organic honey
  • 1/4 cup of chia seeds
  • 1 cup of unsweetened coconut  (raw or toasted)
  • Dark chocolate 70-80% cacao (optional)

  • Mix almond butter and honey together (becomes a bit messy, but so worth it!)

  • Blend oats and chia seeds until powdered and add to honey/almond butter mixture.
  • Shave dark chocolate and add half a cup to mixture
  • Roll into balls about 1/2 inch wide and roll in coconut (if you like toasted coconut better feel free to toast it first)
  • Refrigerate for an hour then ENJOY!

Did you know? Chia seeds are packed with fiber, protein, and omega 3.  They are helpful when your feeling your energy levels decrease, so they make a great pick me up!
