Oatmeal Raisin Bites

Hello Healthy Holiday Finger Food, nice to meet you!


Ingredients:
  • 2 cups gluten free old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 3 cups almond milk or rice milk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
Directions:
  1. Bring milk alternative to a boil in a pot on the stove, and cook the oatmeal and raisins until it looks like breakfast oatmeal, (approx. 6-7 minutes)
  2. Mix cooked oatmeal with remaining ingredients in a large bowl. 
  3. Cover bowl with foil and place in the refrigerator for 24 hours over night. (The oatmeal will then become a moldable dough-like texture.)
  4. The next day, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  5. Roll oatmeal "dough" into small balls, and place on a non-stick greased baking pan.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes until outside is golden brown.
  7. Let cool for 15 minutes on baking pan. When cool, place on a serving dish and relish in your tasty success. 
Note: these can be served as a healthy dessert, or for breakfast as a pastry-like bite... mmm mmm!
