Cowboy "Cookie" Power Bites
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/3 cup dairy-free Enjoy Life chocolate chips
1/3 cup roasted pecans, finely chopped
1 tablespoon dark muscovado sugar (I prefer India Tree)
1/2 cup almond flour
1/3 cup, plus 1 tablespoon creamy almond butter
2 tablespoons local honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons chia seeds
Dash of cinnamon
In a large mixing bowl add the rolled oats, coconut, chocolate chips, pecans, muscovado sugar and almond flour, mix well to blend.
Add the almond butter, honey, vanilla, chia seeds and cinnamon and mix to incorporate. Place in the refrigerator and allow to chill for 15 minutes.
Remove the mixture form the refrigerator and using your hands, press firmly and form into 1-inch balls. (Note: if the mixture is too dry, add a bit more almond butter.)
Store the power bites in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The power bites stay fresh for about 1 week.
