Coconut + Cinnamon Probiotic Power Bites
We already talked about allllll the benefits of taking a pro/prebiotic, but it can get expensive to take a daily supplement. If you’re on a budget, think about splurging on a container of pro//prebiotic powder + pair it with other pro//prebiotic rich foods to reap the benefits + save some cash. Probiotic powder is a great addition to smoothies, bites, oatmeal, or even just with water!
We recommend pairing 1-2 bites with some yogurt or eating 2-3 alone for a quick snack. The best part? Each bite contains ~ 1/4 of your suggested daily serving of probiotics!
*Yields 8-10 bites
- ½ cup Rolled oats
- Dash of Cinnamon [about 2-3 shakes]
- 2 scoops Probiotic Powder [we used Ora Organic powder]
- ¼ cup Almond Butter
- 2 tbsp Coconut Oil
- Handful of Shredded Coconut
- 2 pitted Medjool Dates [you can substitute with any other date variety if you can’t find them!]
- ¼ cup melted Dark Chocolate [optional]
#1] Combine everything in a food processor [or blender] for 15 seconds.
#2] Continue pulse blending for 15 seconds at a time [pushing the batter off the sides of the container] until the batter is a able to be rolled into a ball without crumbling — if the batter keeps crumbling, add more coconut oil!
#3] Roll the batter into 8-10 *bite-size* balls
#4] Dip each bite into a bowl of melted chocolate + sprinkle with shredded coconut
#5] Put bites into a bowl or container + keep in the fridge for at least 30 minutes
#6] You can keep them in the fridge for a few days + up to a week.
You can cover the bites in as much chocolate as you wish — here, we dipped about half of the bite. You can always omit the chocolate OR dip the bites in cocoa powder instead for a less sugary take.
ENJOY ; )
