From no-bake energy bites to healthy mini peanut butter pies!
These healthy no-bake energy bites, packed with superfood, are the perfect healthy snack to enjoy anytime of the day. Top them with a delicious vegan peanut butter mousse and you can turn them into some yummy and healthy mini peanut butter pies.
For the energy bites:
Ingredients (makes 8)
1 cup old-fashioned oats
½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
½ cup ground flax seed
1 tbsp chia seeds
½ cup peanut butter (or almond butter)
⅓ cup honey (or agave, or maple syrup)
½ cup mini chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla extract
Stir all the ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. If too gooey, add some more oatmeal, if too dry, add some water. Cover and let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour. Once chilled, shape into patties, using a stainless-steel measurement cup (¼ cup size), or simply roll into small balls if easier. Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.
For the vegan peanut butter mousse:
1 can full-fat coconut milk
4 tbsp natural creamy peanut butter
2 tbsp maple syrup
Chill coconut milk overnight. When ready to use, remove the lid and scoop out the solid cream from the top into a chilled bowl (reserve the liquid part for a smoothie recipe for example). Using a mixer, beat until creamed together, about one minute. Add peanut butter and maple syrup, and stir until well combined. Transfer into a piping bag and pipe onto each energy bite. Chill for at least one hour before serving. Reserve leftovers in a covered container in the fridge. Will keep for up to 1 week.
