Chocolate Peanut Butter Granola Bites

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut, sweetened or unsweetened
  • 1/2 cup roasted almonds
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch coarse salt

Place the oats in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until ground into small pieces. Add in the coconut and almonds and continue to pulse until finely ground. Transfer to a medium mixing bowl.

In a medium saucepan, combine the peanut butter, honey, coconut oil, cocoa powder, and chocolate chips. Heat over medium heat until the mixture is smooth and the chocolate chips are completely melted. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla and salt. Pour the mixture into the bowl with the oat mixture and stir together until well incorporated.

Scoop the mixture in 1½-2 tablespoon dollops onto a baking sheet. Let sit for a few minutes until slightly more firm and then roll into balls. Once the balls are formed, chill in the refrigerator until firmly set, about 1-2 hours.

Makes 12-15 balls. From Annies Eats
