Amaranth Bites

I have quite the sweet tooth and really need to hold back on sweets like cakes or cookies to not eat them on a daily basis. However I find that if I bake or produce at home I enjoy eating sweets a lot more since I am in control of the amount of sugar and the quality of ingredients used.

Puffed Amaranth Bites

∼ 12 Muffins ∼
40 gr. coconut oil
60 gr. puffed amaranth
20 gr. chia seeds
40 gr. agave nectar / honey
3 teaspoons almond butter
Melted chocolate for the topping

Melt the coconut oil. Mix the amaranth and chia seeds together with the coconut oil, agave nectar and almond butter.

Fill into muffin mold (I prefer the silicone type) and press the mass firmly and evenly into the mold. Cool the bites in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours and freeze them for about 15 minutes prior to taking them out of the mold.

Slather the bites with melted chocolate and let them cool down once more.
