Okay...here they are, Peanut Butter Oat Nut Bites. Lots of people have been requesting this recipe. And let me warn you in advanced, these bites are absolutely addicting. Just ridiculous,
especially if you like peanut butter, which I unashamedly do. The ingredients are simple and real, nothing processed here, and this recipe is very quick and easy to make. I've been making these bites a lot lately, and putting them in the freezer for a longer shelf life. Then when my family or I are craving a little something sweet after a meal or as an afternoon snack, we just pull one or two bites out of the freezer, let them soften for a minute or two, and then eat! So satisfying, and because these bites are made with whole real ingredients you can eat just one, okay maybe two, but then be absolutely satisfied. Here is the recipe below and please, when you make a batch, take a pic, post, and let me know what you think!
Combine oatmeal, walnuts, and sea salt in a strong food processor, and blend until finely crumbled.
Add peanut butter, honey, vanilla, and water, blend until smooth and a large dough ball starts to form.
(NOTE: You will need to stop the processor and scrape down the sides a few times before the dough ball starts to form.)
Scoop by large tablespoon, roll in the palm of your hand to form a tight ball, place on a parchment paper lined glass container with a lid.
Continue rolling out dough until complete. Cover and store either in the refrigerator for 3-5days OR in the freezer for weeks.
(NOTE: When stored in the freezer, it is easy to pull out 1-2 individual servings and eat right out of the freezer. These bites do not freeze completely OR you can also let them sit for a minute or two to soften before eating)
Makes approximately 16-18 bites
