This is a very rich and powerful mix, and it is what it sounds like: oats mixed with (coconut) butter. I also mixed in warming spices and maple syrup to make the whole thing extra decadent.
How to eat oat butter:
There’s really no wrong way to eat oat butter! Eat a spoonful as a pick-me-up snack by itself, or warm it up and drizzle it over a smoothie or yogurt bowl for breakfast.
How we ate it:
We cut two apples into wedges, topped them with oat butter and ate the whole thing in one sitting as a giant dessert. Wow.
You can roll them into bite sized balls and freeze them on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper so you can eat them as quick bites later. Once they’re frozen, just move them into an air-tight container and keep them in the freezer. You’ll have to let them thaw a few minutes before eating — enjoy!
Options to add extra sweetness: feel free to use dates, dried apricots, or honey instead of maple syrup and coconut sugar. You can also exclude sweeteners completely. Just the oats and coconut butter are a little sweet by themselves.
Protein power: you could easily add your favorite protein powder or collagen peptides!
