Chocolate Almond Bites
‘Tis the season…for chocolate! With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, here’s Daily Mom’s spin on on a healthy, protein-packed treat that is delicious and easy for little hands to make. The oats, flax, and almonds are nutritional powerhouses while cocoa powder lends that rich, chocolate flavor we love this time of year.
- 1 c. raw oats
- 1/4 c. ground flax
- 5 tsp. cocoa powder
- 1/4c. raw almonds
- 1/2 c. nut butter
- Milk or water as needed
Combine the first four ingredients in food processor and grind into a coarse meal.
With your hands, mix in nut butter until well-incorporated. Add milk or water by the tablespoon until the mixture is just moist enough to press into small silicon cups.
Freeze or refrigerate until firm. Makes 10-20 depending on size.
