Serves: 12 bites
Ingredients
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • A pinch of coarse salt
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips, melted
Instructions

Fill mini cupcake papers with the mixture and press firmly down (alternatively, you can roll it into balls). Pop in the fridge for a few minutes to allow them to firm up.
  2. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cups and sprinkle a bit of coarse salt on top.
  3. Enjoy immediately or keep in the fridge for up to a week.
Notes
