Almond Butter Fiber Bites

As Martta preps for her amazing Oscar Party coming up tomorrow, I thought I would share this easy & healthy snack recipe…. Almond butter fiber bites!

Need fiber? I think it’s safe to assume the average person does not eat enough fiber in a day… I can include myself in that stereotype as well. A few weeks ago, Martta made some really delicious snacks similar to the Peanut Butter Balls my Mom made us as kids. I’ve attempted to recreate it the way Martta did, but with a little bit of my Mom’s recipe left intact.

1 cup Almond butter

1/2 cup Dried cranberries

1/2 cup Oatmeal

1/4 cup Bran or Flax seed

1/4 cup Sesame seeds

1/4 cup Honey

1/4 cup Powdered milk

Mix all ingredients together and roll into balls! Pretty simple, right? I prefer to refrigerate mine so they are cold and a little more firm, but they should stay together just fine.

I love this recipe because it is so adaptable. Use peanut butter, instead of almond butter for a cheaper alternative. Substitute raisins for the cranberries, or even dried blueberries! More antioxidants, right? I don’t think the powdered milk is a necessity, but it adds more protein, calcium, and vitamin D.  I found it in the baking section of the store, and it was pretty inexpensive.

My daughter loved these, and they are a great snack for after school… that period of time when the crankies come out!

I hope you try these and enjoy them as much as we do!
