“Bitty Bites”- A favourite snack for the whole family! #52NewFoods

BittyBitesWith nut allergies everywhere here is a treat you can pack in school lunch, after school park play or a post-game energy recharger.  It’s a simple no bake cookie made with organic sunflower butter.  I made these this morning and I have maybe 6 cookies with blueberries left!  I also want to make these next time with my son as I know he’d love to make these with me.
Here’s the recipe and better yet.  Get the book The 52 New Foods Challenge from Jennifer Tyler Lee.  Also I just got the Mother of all Food Processors.  Really top of the line so this was the first thing I made with my Sous Chef 12 Plus!  OMG.  I am going to be busy in the kitchen.  You have no idea how elated I am to finally have a food processor.   I hope you’ll try the No bake cookies without peanut butter!

Ingredients
  1. 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats(not the quick cooking kind)
  2. 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour ( I used organic spelt flour)
  3. 1/2 cup of sunflower butter
  4. 1/2 cup of honey
  5. 1/4 cup of dark chocolate chips or dried fruit such as cranberries or raisins
  6. 3/4 cup of shredded unsweetened coconut
Instructions
  1. 1. In a food processor, pulse the oats until finely ground. About 2 minutes.
  2. 2. Add the flour, sunflower butter, honey and chocolate chips to oats. Pulse again until the mixture comes together into a large ball. About 2 minutes.
  3. 3. Using a tablespoon, place a small amount of dough in your hands and roll into a ball the size of a large marble. Roll each cookie in the shredded coconut. At this point your kids can shape the cookies however they like. My kids usually leave them as bite size marbles, or press them with the center of their thumb and add a piece of dried fruit for decoration. (I used dried blueberries)
  4. 4. Refrigerate the cookies for 15 minutes before serving. Store in air tight container in the fridge for up to a week or freeze for up to a month.
