Happy Valentine’s Day! Even though this year I’m left without a valentine I still get to eat my chocolate hearts!
I made these two days ago and have been snacking on them non stop, because they are just soooo good!
Very easy to whip up with minimal ingredients. So skip those boxes of chocolate and make a bit of a healthier version!
1 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup coconut sugar
1 cup gluten free oats
2 tbsp cacao powder
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of sea salt
Optional chocolate sauce recipe :
4 medjool dates
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tbsp almond milk
1 tbsp cacao powder
1/6 tsp vanilla extract
In a large mixing bowl add in the peanut butter, oats, coconut sugar, vanilla extract, sea salt and mix well to combine. It’s totally optional to cut out dough into hearts or just ball into bite size pieces.
Optional recipe is cacao sauce to coat the bites with.
For this add to your high speed blender 1/4 cup melted coconut oil, 4 medjool dates, 1 tablespoon cacao powder, 1/6 tsp vanilla extract and 1 tbsp almond milk blend to a chocolate sauce consistency. Dip the oat bites into the chocolate and freeze for at least 30 minutes.
