Trail Mix Bites

Share/print: fb twit pint print
Recipe adapted from Eat, Live, Run

 

Ingredients

1 cup old fashioned or quick-cooking oats, dry

1/4 cup quinoa, dry + 3/4 cup water

1/3 cup chopped up plain almonds

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

1/3 cup dried cherries, raisins or cranberries

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 tbsp peanut butter

1/3 cup honey

**The original recipe called for coconut flakes and sunflower seeds. I used what I had on hand and you can too!

Instructions

Combine the quinoa and water in a small saucepot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 12 minutes, until quinoa has absorbed all the liquid. Fluff and scoop quinoa into a large mixing bowl.

Add almonds, oats, and dried cherries to quinoa and mix well. Bring honey to a simmer on the stove then stir in the vanilla extract and pour on top of nuts and seeds. Mix until well combined.

Let mixture cool before adding the chocolate chips, peanut butter and sea salt. Mix well with your hands so the peanut butter is evenly dispersed but be careful not to melt the chocolate chips! Chill dough in fridge for an hour.

Using wet hands, gently roll mixture into golf ball-sized balls. Place balls on a plate and chill for at least two hours until firm. (You will need to wet your hands a few times or else mixture will fall apart and stick.)
