Chocolate Banana Oat Bites

Ingredients

1 c quick oats

1 ripe banana

1/4 c whole, raw almonds

2 T unsweetened coconut flakes

1 T shelled hemp seeds

1 T almond butter (or other nut butter)

1/2 t cinnamon

1/2 c dark chocolate morsels

Directions:

1. In a food processor, combine all of the ingredients, except for the chocolate, until it forms into a ball.


2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon mat. Using a tablespoon measure or scoop, form 1" balls and place onto baking sheet.


3. To melt the chocolate, use a saucepan and a glass bowl that fits inside the saucepan without touching the bottom. Fill the saucepan with water about 1/4 full and place the glass bowl on top (the water should not touch the bottom of the bowl). Bring the water to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Add chocolate morsels and melt, stirring occasionally with a rubber scraper or metal spoon. Once chocolate is melted, turn off the heat.


4. Using a toothpick, pick up one ball at a time and dip it halfway into the chocolate, then place back onto baking sheet. Continue this until each one is dipped chocolate. Place baking sheet in the refrigerator for 1 hour to allow the chocolate to harden.


5. Keep the Chocolate Banana Oat Bites refrigerated until ready to eat
