Healthy chocolate bites

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond butter or peanut butter

  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup apple sauce
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk

  • 3 cups quick-cooking oats

Method

  1. In a medium sauce pan, mix together the first six ingredients (through almond milk).
  2. Bring the mixture to a gentle boil, stirring frequently.
  3. Continue the low boil for two minutes, stirring almost constantly.
  4. Reduce the heat and add the chocolate chips, stirring until they are melted.
  5. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the oats.
  6. Drop rounded tablespoons of the mixture onto a tray lined with wax or parchment paper. (You may choose to form them into a cookie shape or leave them as they fall).
  7. Place the tray in the freezer to allow the cookies to firm, at least 15 minutes.
  8. These are best kept stored in the refrigerator.
