Berry Oat Bites
by Renee Sexton
These healthy biscuit bites are super quick to make. They’re ideal for breakfast on the go with a piece of fruit, or simply enjoyed in the afternoon with a cup of tea. Made by nutritionist Renee Sexton, they’re also vegan, wheat free, contain no artificial sweeteners and are a great source of healthy fats and protein to keep you fuller for longer and curb those afternoon sugar cravings.
- 2 cups Chantal jumbo oats
- 1/2 cup Chantal desiccated coconut
- 1 tsp Chantal cinnamon powder
- 1/3 cup Chantal pumpkin seeds
- 1/2 cup Chantal whole dried apricots (chopped)
- A pinch of Chantal fine sea salt
- 1/3 cup Chantal almond butter
- 1/3 cup Chantal coconut oil (melted)
- 1/3 cup Chantal brown rice syrup
- 2 large ripe bananas
- 1/3 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1. Turn oven on to fan bake at 170 degrees Celsius and line a tray with baking paper.
2. In a large bowl add the oats, desiccated coconut, cinnamon, pumpkin seeds, chopped apricots, pinch of salt and mix well.
3. In a smaller bowl add the melted coconut oil, almond butter, rice syrup, blueberries and then gently mash the bananas and add to the bowl.
4. Combine both bowls ingredients together and mix well.
5. Scoop small balls into your hand and gently roll before placing on baking tray. Continue with the rest of the mixture until they’ve all been rolled. Gently press each one down with the back of a fork.
6. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
7. Allow to cool before transferring to an airtight container. These will last one week when stored in the fridge.
These are great with a piece of fruit as breakfast on the go. We also love them as an afternoon treat with a nice cup of tea.
