Finding health snacks to put into lunchboxes that are nut-free can be a challenge at time. These snack bites as we have called them are a great addition to both adult and children's lunchboxes, or at home as a snack between meals.
1/2 cup coconut chips (you could substitute it for 1/3 cup desiccated coconut)
1 cup sunflower seeds
1/3 cup gluten free rolled oats
1/2 cup dates roughly chopped
1 tsp chia seeds
3 Tbsp pumpkin seed butter
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1 Tbsp raw honey
3 Tbsp filtered water
Place the coconut chips, sunflower seeds, oats and dates in your food processor. Blitz together until finely chopped. Add in chia seeds and pumpkin-seed butter, coconut oil and honey. Blitz until all combined. Finally add in water and process until it comes together. You should end up with a mixture that is combined and rolls into balls when pressed together.
Using heaped tsp amounts roll into balls. Keep in fridge for up to 7 days. Enjoy...
