Peanut Butter, Oat and Dark Chocolate Bites

Happy Friday, Friends!

This morning I got up early and the sun was rising–it was the most gorgeous orange, yellow and pink. What a great start to the weekend! Beauty is all around us if we look for it!

I wanted to share with you a wildly popular Instagram post that I posted this week. It is a healthier version of a dark chocolate peanut butter cup –made into a bite size balls.

These are made with simple pantry staples–and they are truly delish!

Check these beauties out:

Here is the recipe and I hope you enjoy it!

    Any suggestions for those in families w/ peanut allergies? I’m low-FODMAP and my son has a severe peanut allergy so peanuts/peanut butter can never be in our house. Our dog can’t even eat peanut butter treats.

        Yes, I believe those options would work well. If the sunflower butter is sweetened–you may need to reduce maple syrup (use 1-2 Tablespoons instead) and oat flour slightly less (perhaps leave it a 1/4 cup only) so it’s not too sweet and consistency remains the same.

    These sound wonderful, and I would love to make them. Does anyone know why, digestively, I can eat peanuts and other nuts, but the nut butters do not work for me? Perhaps the oatmeal will help.

    Same question from me for same reason. Also, can you substitute rice and/or coconut flour for the oat flour? I am one of those Celiac people who cannot tolerate oat products, even if certified GF. Thanks!

      It certainly worth a try, Rhiannon. From a FODMAP standpoint, coconut flour is high fodmap–but you wouldn’t be getting much in 1-2 bite portion. I think almond flour would provide best flavor profile–but this recipe is worth experimenting with…

        Thanks Kate and friends for sunflower butter suggestions and accommodations for such. Glad to hear that experimenting with the flour(s) just might work. Due to allergies to nuts/seeds, I can’t use almond flour, much as I’d like to. I had forgotten about coconut flour being high FODMAP — darn. I’ll see what I can “cook up” with rice flour….and maybe tigernut flour (not truly a nut, despite the name, 🙂 ). I wonder about teff flour or quinoa flour? Looks like I’ll be busy over this Superbowl weekend, LOL!

    These are delicious. Thank you for sharing the recipe. I made them as a Valentine treat for my husband and me. Do you think they would freeze well?
