Chocolate Covered Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites

Last week I was on a mission for something chocolatey. Since we’re on the Daniel Fast, that means it has to contain all natural ingredients. No sugar. No honey. No maple syrup.

These satisfied my chocolate cravings, and the fact that they’re healthy and good for you is a huge bonus.

These are perfect for Valentine’s Day. If you don’t have a heart mold you can use whatever shape you want, even shaping them into a ball is fine.

I think these taste like a dark chocolate chewy granola bar. With a hint of peanut butter. You will love these!

Chocolate Covered Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites

recipe adapted from Chocolate Covered Katie

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 oats (Sometimes I use all oats and no coconut. If you don’t want coconut, up the oats to 3/4 cup and leave out the coconut)
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup walnuts (or cashews, almonds, or pecans)
  • 1/2 cup dates (I used raisins)
  • 2 T peanut butter, (melted if kept in the fridge)
  • 2 T cocoa powder
  • 2 T coconut oil, melted
  • For the drizzle: 1/4 cup coconut oil and 1/4 cup cocoa powder (if the drizzle is too dark tasting you could always add in some maple syrup)

Directions:

  1. In a blender, blend the oats until they’re finely ground. Add the rest of the ingredients, except the stuff for the drizzle.
  2. Shape dough into balls, hearts, or whatever you want and refrigerate for a half hour.
  3. Melt 1/4 cup coconut oil and mix with 1/4 cup cocoa powder. Dip hearts into the drizzle and let set up. It shouldn’t take long to harden. I even find that the drizzle is good on ice cream, yogurt, and whatever else you like chocolate syrup on.
  4. Keep hearts refrigerated, and enjoy!
