Ingredients: 
  • 1 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 1/4 cup chopped pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup no-salt-added unsweetened almond butter
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1 teaspoon pure almond extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
Method: 
Place oats, dates, almond butter, poppy seeds, almond extract and nutmeg in a food processor and process until smooth and sticking together. Drizzle in 2 to 3 tablespoons hot water so that the mixture comes into a ball. Using a teaspoon, scoop out a heaping spoonful of the mixture. Roll into a ball, pressing firmly so that it sticks together. Chill bites until ready to serve. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 1 week.
