Recipe: Crunchy Bliss Bites
Food Mood Girl Lindsey Smith of Brookline shares a recipe for a snack that tastes like junk food, but has a healthy twist.
The other day, I really wanted a sweet, crunchy, and healthy snack. I literally had nothing on hand.
Instead of hopping to the grocery store for a pre-made package of something, I decided to get a little creative with ingredients I did have. I whipped up these amazing “Crunchy Bliss Bites” in about 10 minutes.
They not only taste good, but they are super easy to make and satisfy both a sweet and crunchy craving!
- ½ cup cashews
- ¼ cup coconut shreds
- 2 Tbsp. raw cacao
- ¾ cup quick oats
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 6 tsp coconut oil
- 2 tsp raw honey
- ½ cup almond butter
1. Process cashews and coconut shreds in food processor until fine. For a little crunch, process a little less.
2. Place mixture in a bowl and add oats, sea salt and raw cacao. Stir.
3. Add coconut oil and mix.
4. Gradually mix in honey and peanut butter until the mixture becomes one ball.
5. Take mixture and roll into little balls. This mixture makes about 12.
BONUS TIP: Freeze the bites for a late night sweet craving without the guilt!
