Tahini Oat Bites with Quaker® July 7, 2019

by Amanda Li Eat

 These Tahini Oat Bites are the perfect homemade, no-bake snack for any time of day.

Oats are a classic, early–morning staple, but why limit yourself to only mornings? We partnered with Quaker®Oats to get the low-down on why this whole-grain is just oat-of-this-world:

  • Low in saturated and trans fats: A healthy diet low in saturated and trans fats may reduce the risk of heart disease. Quaker® oatmeal is low in saturated and trans fats.
  • Wholesome whole grains: The Canada Food Guide recommends including whole grains as a part of a healthy eating pattern. All oats are 100% whole grain and are a fast, easy way to squeeze the grains into your diet.
  • Full of fibre: Oats contain beta glucan, a soluble fibre that helps lower cholesterol, which is a risk factor for heart disease. One serving (30g) of Quaker® Quick Oats supplies 40% of the daily amount of fibres shown to help lower cholesterol!

Oats are also a source of energy, so grab some of these oat bites for a nutritious way to help get you going. The best part? These bites are endlessly customizable, jam-packed with feel-good ingredients, and naturally sweetened! Basically, they’re the perfect snack. You’re welcome!

Tahini Oat Bites

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 1/2 Cup Quaker® Large Flake Oats
  • 1/2 Cup Tahini
  • 3 Tablespoons Honey
  • 1/2 Cup Unsweetened Coconut
  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 56g Dried Apricots
  • 28g Pistachios

MAKE DOUGH

Cut apricots into 1/4-inch pieces. In a large bowl, using a wooden spoon, stir together tahini and honey, until well combined, 1 min. Add Quaker® oats, apricots, cinnamon, pistachios and a pinch of salt. Stir together, until mixture is well combined and makes a sticky dough, 1 min.

ROLL DOUGH

Roll dough into 16 equal, 1 tbsp-sized, round bites. To a parchment-lined baking sheet, add bites and set aside.

COAT BITES

To a shallow dish, add coconut. Working with one bite at a time, roll into coconut, pressing gently, until coated. Return coconut-covered bites to the parchment-lined baking sheet when covered. Repeat with remaining bites until all are coconut are covered.

FINISH AND SERVE

Chill bites in the fridge, until firm, 30 mins-1 hour. The bites will keep in an airtight container in the fridge (for 1 week) or freezer (for 1 month).

PRO TIP: Make them in bulk and store in the fridge for a go-to snack any time of the day. Future you will appreciate it.

Keep the oat party going!

Our Tahini Oat Bite was so sticky that it came out like a fuzzy hairy coconut glob. Would less honey mix be easier to make into a ball? Or more oats?
