Valentine's Day

I am always looking for tasty recipes for snacks that do not include a lot of sugar or other unhealthy ingredients. Recently I found a couple delightful recipes on Pintrest that are not only healthy but delicious! Today I made up a double batch of Crispy Chocolate Almond Butter Bites. I altered the recipe a bit by changing out the almond butter for peanut butter. This recipe is definitely one I will be making again. : )

Crispy Chocolate Almond Butter Bites

♦ 1/4 cup coconut oil

♦ 1/2 cup cocoa powder

♦ 1/2 cup smooth almond butter or peanut butter

♦ 1/4 cup raw honey or maple syrup

♦ 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

♦ 1 cup crispy rice


Melt the coconut oil in a microwave or stovetop. Add all the ingredients (EXCEPT THE CRISPY RICE) in a blender or food processor. (I prefer my food processor) Blend. Dump in the crispy rice and stir

Place the mixture in silicone trays or mini muffin tins with muffin tin wrappers. Put in the refrigerator or freezer to set. (Minimum 10 minutes.) If using a silicone tray and you want a smoother finish, really press them firmly into the tray. You may have to play around with a few!

Happy Valentine's Day!
