My favorite snack and dessert recipes involve:
So I’m excited to share this quick and easy no bake recipe I whipped up this week. I debated what to call these – Cookies? Snack balls? Clusters? I settled on bites because their shape varies and they are pretty good for ya!
The recipe is super simple – the hardest part (which isn’t really that hard) is getting your coconut butter nice and soft. You can do this either in a microwave (carefully) or put the whole jar in a pot of hot water. You want it to be the consistency of room temperature butter so it will mix well with the other ingredients.
I used oat flour for a doughy taste, but I imagine whole wheat flour would work fine here too. Make oat flour by sending oats through the food processor until you get a flour consistency. Swap out the walnuts for any kind of nuts you like too.
Start by mixing all of your dry ingredients in a bowl –
And then add your coconut butter and water and use clean hands to bring mixture together.
Form into balls (or clusters!) Give them a squeeze to help the ingredients stick and then roll.
Pop them in the freezer for a few hours and then transfer to a bag for easy storage. Keep them frozen so the coconut butter stays hard! They are soft enough to bite into straight from the freezer though.
