These little Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Bites got me through the ten hour drive to Utah we did a couple of weeks ago. I always crave chocolate while traveling so these little bites were the perfect snack to curb my sweet tooth.
These are jam packed with good-for-you-ingredients– ground oats, hemp hearts, chia seeds…oh, and some almond butter + dark chocolate chips 🙂 I just love love love everything about these. Could make them + eat them every day.
Like I said, these are great for road trips, but also great for pre workout, post workout, afternoon or evening snacking–you name it! We road trip pretty frequently so I’ll be making these every single time we hit the road!
- 1 cup oats
- 3/4 cup hemp hearts
- 3 tbsps chia seeds
- 1/2 cup almond butter
- 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
- 3 tbsp coconut oil
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup (or honey or agave)
- Place everything but the chocolate chips in a poweful blender or food processor. Blend until the oats are ground and fine and everything is good together. Stir in chocolate chips. Roll into one inch balls. Store in the fridge.
- **if the balls need a little extra liquid to help them stick together, add a drizzle of maple syrup to get the right consistency.
- yields 12-15 bites.
