SUPER Easy Cinnamon Almond Butter Bites

I feel like I have a lifetime supply of homemade Almond butter (thanks to our awesome Bootcamp members!) and can't possibly get through it on my own. So I have been trying to think what else to do with it.... What to make.. who to make stuff for!!??
 So here comes a little snack that will curb your sweet craving and fill your tummy with nutritional fats!  And please don't be that person who gets alarmed by the word FAT.... Yes, fat is good for you! Just not that Super Size McDonald french fry kind of fat. The good fats that are found in almonds and coconut oils!! 
Try this super easy recipe that will take you only 10 mins to prep...

  • 1 1/2 cups raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 almond butter
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp agave (or more if you want it sweeter)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  1. In a food processor, pulse the almonds and rolled oats until a flour-like consistency is reached.
  2. Pour into a medium bowl along with some sea salt and cinnamon, mix well & set aside.
  3. In another small bowl, mix together the almond butter, coconut oil, agave, and vanilla extract.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients and mix well. You may have to use your hands to get it evenly mixed.
  5. Roll the mixture into quarter-sized balls and place onto a baking pan.
  6. Continue until you have completed – makes about 30 bites.
  7. Place them in the freezer for a minimum of 30 minutes.
  8. Store in an airtight container in the freezer.
