Snacking can be easy and healthy with these Maple Almond Snack Bites. Little hits of chocolate, rolled with hearty oats, nutritious almond butter and sweetened with maple syrup.
I was feeling snacky and luck would have it that the ingredients for these Maple Almond Snack Bites are ones that I usually have on hand in the good ol’ pantry so these little beauts can be at my fingertips virtually whenever.
MAPLE ALMOND SNACK BITES
These nutritionally dense snack bites have oats, ground flax and coconut as bulk and almond butter to bind things together.
I used maple syrup as the sweetener.
HOW TO MAKE MAPLE ALMOND SNACK BITES
Stir all your ingredients together well and form the mixture into balls.
It’s super hard and requires great skill to eat healthy, doesn’t it? 😉
By using gluten free oats and almond butter over peanut butter makes these bites allergy friendly and using dark chocolate over milk chocolate keeps it dairy free.
They are also great little treats to tote with you to school or work for a mid shift or mid class pick me up.
I love having ‘good-for-you’ treats hanging out in the fridge for when the mood strikes you for something sweet to nibble on. These definitely don’t last long in our house. We both love the maple centered goodies. Such true Canadians! Lol. Fresh local maple syrup is a definite perk of being from Canada.
Great option for a sweet, healthy snack.
