To say the least, life is freaking hectic. You have responsibilities ranging from a full-time job to kids to pets to your health to education! You get out of breath just going through your list of responsibilities! Or at least I do. Life is stressful and there’s no way around it except to roll with it. How do you roll with it? By making life easier for yourself along the way!
A big part of our life is food (surprise surprise). We don’t want to skip meals or snacks, but at the same time, we don’t always have a lot of time to prepare those meals. So, I create recipes like this one, in order to keep us fueled on the go. It’s important to us that we eat healthy on the go, but it should taste good too! So…along comes Coconut Chocolate Oat Bites. What a wonderfully delicious name. With the help of Silk Coconutmilk, we were able to create one of the simplest healthy recipes for those on the go. Can you tell I’m excited about it? Let’s get to the recipe.
- 1 cup oats
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 2.5 tbsp peanut butter
- 3 tbsp maple syrup
- 3 squares dark chocolate
- 2 tbsp Silk Coconutmilk
- Heat the peanut butter, maple syrup, and Silk Coconutmilk together over low heat in a pan.
- Have oats and cinnamon mixed together in a bowl
- Once warm, pour the peanut butter mixture into the oats and cinnamon and really stir.
- Break the squares of chocolate into small pieces
- Once it is mixed well, fold in the pieces of chocolate
- Cover and put in the fridge for 20 minutes
- Take out and roll into small balls and store in fridge
I’m going to keep these in a zip-loc in the fridge at home AND at work, because you never know when you need a snack. It’s important to have a healthy snack accessible, because if not, you’re just going to binge on Red Vines and Sun Chips and then feel bad about it later.
