No-Bake Nutella Pretzel Power Bites

Wednesday, February 24, 2016



Today we are officially bringing back the power bites! I haven't made a batch of this bite sized delights in what feels like a forever, which is why today I just have to share with you this recipe that incorporates two of my favourite things; Nutella and Nutella Coated Pretzels. Much like my previous power bite recipe this one also doesn't require any baking, which means that it is super beginner friendly. So without further ado lets get on with the recipe.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ingredients: 

 1 cup Old Fashion Oats
1 cup Pretzels (Ground)*
1 cup Nutella
1 tablespoon Honey
1/4 cup Dried Cherries
1/4 cup Raisins
1/4 cup Chocolate Chips
1/4 cup Coconut Flakes

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Directions:
In a food processor take a hand full of pretzels and grind it up. It is imperative that the pretzels be nice a crushed without turning to complete dust. You should try to aim for teeny tiny morsels that still resemble pretzel pieces but wont be over powering or obnoxious in a bite sized treat.

Now in a large mixing bowl combine the oats, ground pretzels, cherries, raisins, chocolate chips and coconut flakes together. 

Next add the Nutella and honey to the mixture and begin to fold it in. You may have to add more honey or nutella depending on how dense your mixture is.

Once your mixture is fully combined and is starting to form together, with your hands form small 1" balls and place on a baking tray that has been lined with wax paper.

Next place you tray back in the fridge and allow for the balls to set completely. Once your bites have set store them in an air tight container within your refrigerator.


Like I mentioned in my previous recipe there are so many variations of these power bites, so feel free to add and customize any of these ingredients and really make these bites your own. As always let me know what you think of this post and if you'd like to see what other variations I can come up with next.
