Ingredients

  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ¼ cup almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Cinnamon Sugar Coating

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 ½ teaspoon raw cane sugar

For the Chocolate Cinnamon Coating:

  • ½ teaspoon cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon raw cane sugar

Instructions

For the Bites:

  • Blend walnuts and rolled oats in a food processor until powder-like in consistency.
  • Add the almond butter, vanilla, maple syrup, and cinnamon to the food processor and blend until smooth.
  • Take a tablespoon and scoop out the mixture. Roll into balls and set aside for coating.

For the Cinnamon Sugar Coating:

  • In a small bowl or plate, mix together the cinnamon and raw sugar.
  • Roll half the bites (about 8) in the cinnamon sugar until coated well.

For the Chocolate Cinnamon Sugar Coating:

  • Mix the cocoa powder and raw cane sugar with the remaining cinnamon sugar.
  • Roll the rest of the bites until well coated.
  • Serve at room temperature or refrigerate for snacking on later!

Notes

  • This made about 16 bites for me (after a few tastes here and there :) ) 
  • You can do all the bites with just one coating or both. Whichever you prefer!
  • For the chocolate cinnamon coating, I used the remaining cinnamon sugar topping and added cocoa powder and an extra 1/2 teaspoon sugar.
