Pistachios Recipe Snacking

Oh-so-delicious Healthy Vegan Oat Cakes! Who needs junk food when you can make something as mouth-watering as these crumbly soft centered oat bites. To make things even better they’re topped with cocao ‘icing’ and I’ve made sure that there are no refined sugars in them –  talk about a dream healthy sweet snack!! The result? oat bites can be eaten on the go and fill you up while topping up your energy levels.

16 amazing oat bites

Ingredients:

For Bites
200g Oats (large/jumbo porridge oats)
60g Borna Natural Kernels
16 Dates
4 tbsp Desiccated coconut
3 tbsp Coconut oil (in liquid form)
3 tbsp Agave
3 tbsp Borna Smooth 100% Pistachio butter
4 tbsp almond milk

For Topping
4 tbsp Cocao
2 tbsp Agave Syrup
2 tsp Coconut oil (in liquid form)

Instructions:

♥ Firstly, preheat the oven to 170°C

♥ Blend the oats, natural kernels, dates and desiccated coconut together until evenly combined. Be careful you don’t blend it too much as you still want the oats to be a little chunky otherwise they’ll turn into a flour consistency. Transfer the mixture to a mixing bowl.

♥ Add the coconut oil, agave, pistachio butter and almond milk into with the dry ingredients while stirring with a wooden spoon. Mix together until evenly distributed.

♥ Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and grease with coconut oil to stop the oat bites from sticking.

♥ Now it’s time to get messy!! With clean hands, roll the mixture into ping-pong sized balls and then flatten them into a patty shape, then place it on the baking tray.

♥ Bake for 15 mins.

♥ Meanwhile, whip the cocao, agave and coconut oil together. You’ll need to use a little elbow grease and whip-fast to help the ingredients mix together. It may seem like they aren’t going to combine but just keep whipping!

♥ Once the oat bites have finished baking, transfer them to a cooling rack. Leave to cool for 10 mins.

♥ With a piping bag, or if you don’t have one you can use a spoon, decorate the oat bites with the cocao mixture.

♥ Finally..it’s time to enjoy!
