Healthy Chocolate Oat Bites Recipe
My friend Emily and I have been exchanging recipe ideas back and forth for awhile, and she shared this recipe with me the other day.
It’s an oatmeal-based concoction that falls somewhere between a breakfast food and a dessert; a granola bar and an oatmeal cookie.
It’s butter-less and flour-less, and just slightly sweetened with melted chocolate chips and honey.
This cheap recipe is super adaptable, and uses ingredients that you probably already have on hand:
- If you don’t have regular milk, you can substitute soy milk, almond milk or another variety.
- If you have a nut allergy, you could swap in sunflower seeds or toasted coconut.
There are so many different directions this recipe could go. Have fun making your own version!
