Something For Saturday: No-Bake Snack Bites

Just a little something for Saturday.

I was looking for a quick snack the other day for me and Emma and I thought of the healthy no-bake muffins I made a while back that can be found here.  I decided to recreate them, but re-configure them into easy-to-grab bite-sized shapes.  And I made two versions, so we would have plenty of healthy snack options on hand in the fridge.

Chocolate Chip & Coconut Almond Butter Oat Bites

  • 1 cup old fashioned uncooked oats
  • 2/3 cup toasted coconut flakes

Notes:

  • You can toast coconut flakes yourself by placing the flakes in a thin layer on a baking sheet and bake in an oven preheated to 325 degrees for about 5-10 minutes.
  • Or you can purchase store-bought toasted coconut flakes like these awesome 100% organic unsweetened ones I grabbed at Whole Foods.
  • Makes about 15-20 snack bites depending on what size you make them.
  • This version is my favorite!

Notes:

  • Use a fork to mash the banana, so that it is smooth and then a wooden spoon to combine all of the ingredients.
  • If you like a bit of texture, you can add some toasted coconut flakes to the mix.
  • Since the banana consistency makes these super moist, they should be refrigerated overnight after making into balls and before eating in order to hold up the best.
  • Makes about 15-20 snack bites depending on what size you make them.
  • This version is Emma’s favorite!

Enjoy!
