Too CUTE for the Thanksgiving table!
~ACORN BITES~ (Makes 30-35)
This is a great fall snack and they're pretty healthy too!!
Here's what you need...
1/3 Cup pumpkin puree
1/3 Cup light agave nectar
1 1/3 cups instant oatmeal (comes out to 5 packets)
1 Cup Kellogg's All Bran Cereal, plus extra for the stems
2/3 cup sweetened coconut flakes
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cups chocolate chips, melted
1/2 cup toasted sesame seeds
What ya need to do...
In medium-large mixing bowl, mix together the first seven ingredients. I found it was easier to use my hands. Once moistened through, cover and put in the fridge for about an hour to chill. It’s fine if you leave it in longer.
When you’re ready to form the acorns, melt the chocolate in the microwave, put sesame seeds in separate small bowl. Form dough into acorn-shaped balls, dip fat end in chocolate, and then dip the chocolate end in the sesame seeds. Use single All Bran cereal pieces and inset as stems.
