I'm happy to be sponsored by The Quaker Oats Company for this delicious recipe and post! All opinions are mine alone. 

You’ve probably seen versions of these bites before. Maybe you’ve even made a batch or two. But, what makes these bites stand out from the rest is that they provide you 7g of whole grain and 3g fiber in just 2 bites! (values calculated by Quaker® Oats nutritionists). 

With the help of Quaker ® Oats nutritionists, I’ve taken the recipe for these easy to make snack bites (or “energy bites”) and reworked the ingredients to create a snack that’s not only convenient, but also tastes great! They are packed with roasted almonds, almond butter, and Quaker ® Oats. Honey adds extra sweetness. Your whole family will enjoy them!

Old Fashioned Quaker ® Oats adds an extra boost of nutrition in these Almond Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bites. I’ve been a fan of these oats for as long as I remember. They were a staple in my house growing up and they’re a whole grain staple in my house today. You’ll always find a container or two in my kitchen pantry. 

Did you know that 2017 marked the 140th anniversary of the Quaker ® Oats Company? So now they’re celebrating over 140 years of dedication of delivering nutrition by providing the highest quality and most delicious oats on the market today. I try to incorporate Old Fashioned Quaker ® Oats into my family’s menu several times a week.

Almond Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bites are very easy to make, but you’ll need a good food processor or a heavy duty blender to grind up the roasted almonds. That’s the hardest part about this recipe. Not only is this recipe easy to put together, but everything gets mixed in right in the food processor for easy clean up.
