3 ingredient Almond butter bites

I couldn’t wait any longer to post these 3 ingredient Almond butter bites for you. I actually made them in about 10 minutes a couple of days ago because I wanted something sweet but still healthy.

My kids went crazy for these 3 ingredient Almond butter bites. My son, since my 5 yr old girl can’t take them to school due to the nut allergies, takes them for his school lunch and loves them. Next time I make these I have to double the batch for sure. They are so good.

Not only these are gluten free but they are also vegan. I keep the recipe pretty easy and straight forward but next time I make them I am going to add chocolate protein powder and flaxseed meal to kick up their nutrient density. All in all, these 3 ingredient Almond butter bites are just great.

On another note, I am almost getting ready for my 3 month summer departure leaving in just 3  days.

Our first stop is Spain will be for 2 months. I haven’t been able to go for the past 2 yrs so to tell you that I am pretty excited is an understatement.

Not only I will be able to spend time with my friends and family, but I will be able to visit places that I have never visited while living there. I am going to try and chronicle some of our visits and most definitely post some food related pictures.

On top of that I will be able to meet the team that is going to be behind my second cooking book which will be made in Spain for my Spanish readers. I hope to have translated in English as well, so will see.

Anyhow, I have a very hectic few days ahead of me. While in Spain, I am going to slow down the blogging. I will still post a couple of recipes per week and perhaps add a few videos to my private FB group.

Enjoy!

3 ingredient Almond butter bites

Miryam's original recipe

Yield: 18-20 bites

Total Time:10 minutes

Ingredients:

Drizzle (optional)

  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips, vegan if need be
  • 1 tbs coconut oil

Directions:

Place the rolled oats in a food processor and pulverize. Depending on your food processor this make take between 1-3 minutes.

Add the almond butter and maple syrup and combine until the mixture becomes together. If it doesn't just add a couple of tablespoons of water.

Transfer mixture to a bowl and roll the dough into bite-size balls. I stored mine covered in a glass bowl in the refrigerator.

If using the drizzle, just place the chocolate and coconut oil in a safe microwave bowl and melt in 30 seconds intervals stirring in between until it melts. Drizzle over bites.

NOTE: You can add chocolate protein powder and flaxseed meal to the mixture if you like, however, you will have to increase the amount of maple syrup or add a bit of water to make the dough come together.
