Pistachio nut butter. Need I say more?
Gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, all natural, and delicious.
There. I've gone and outdid myself.
Pistachio Butter Granola Bites
1 cup shelled pistachios
1/4 cup hot water
2 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp coconut oil
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 Tbsp chia seeds
3/4 cup rolled oats
5 dried figs, chopped
Soak shelled pistachios in hot water for 30 minutes. Transfer nuts and water to a food processor and chop until smooth. Add coconut oil and honey. Continue to mix until a thick puree is formed. Add in coconut, chia seeds and oats. Mix until combined. Transfer to a bowl and fold in chopped figs.
Roll ~1 1/2 Tbsp of mixture into a tight ball. Place in a covered container in the refrigerator until ready to eat!
