Coconut Covered Oatmeal Chocolate Bites



A sweet little treat for you today that takes almost no time to put together! This is actually a Swedish Chokladbollar recipe that I have used and adapted. And I mean, unless you are Swedish and can pronounce this in Swedish, saying "chokladbollar" in English sounds pretty weird. So I'm just going to call them Coconut Covered Oatmeal Chocolate Bites. That's a pretty long name, but again, chocolate balls? Not the prettiest name for these tasty little guys!



Coconut Covered Oatmeal Chocolate Bites (slightly adapted from Alt om Honung)
Makes about 20 to 22 bites, depending on how large or small you form them

3 dl or 1 1/4 cup oatmeal (rolled oats, steel-cut, or crushed oats, doesn't really matter)
4 tbsp honey
100g unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 to 4 tbsp cocoa powder (I used about 3.5 tbsp because there is so much honey in the recipe)
unsweetened shredded coconut

Mix together the honey, butter, and cocoa powder until it is blended and smooth. Add the oatmeal and mix until combined. Form the mixture into round balls and then roll them in the shredded coconut.

Place them in a airtight container and store them in the fridge and wait an hour or so for the bites to firm up a bit. Keep them stored in the fridge and take them out to eat whenever you'd like!



A treat for the weekend maybe? Happy Friday friends!
