Recipe courtesy of Ground Up
1 cup Ground Up Chunky Almond, Coconut + Cashew Butter (but any flavor would work!)
1/2 cup honey
2 cups oats (we use quick-cooking, but old-fashioned would work too)
1/2 cup cacao powder (optional)
Sea salt (optional)
Toasted cacao nibs (optional, but highly recommended!)
Combine the nut butter, honey and oats. Then use one of two methods:
In a food processor, combine the first three ingredients until just incorporated, and a dough-y texture forms.
OR Combine nut butter and honey in a small bowl. In a microwave on the stove top, gently melt the mixture until the two are incorporated. Then fold in the oats until a “dough” forms.
**If adding cacao powder, do so when you add in the oats.**
Line a baking sheet or plate with wax paper. Using a tablespoon measuring spoon, scoop dollops onto the pan. Use a fork to flatten the tops.
Top with sea salt and/or toasted cacao nibs.
Place in freezer for 15 minutes to harden. Then, you’re ready to enjoy!
Store in the refrigerator for up to one month.
