I like the flavor and texture of raw rolled oats, but toasting them would be great too. If you decide to try it, just cook and stir the rolled oats in a dry skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes or so until they turn golden brown (let them cool before adding them to the mix).
4ouncesgood quality dark chocolatechopped (or chips)
1/4cupheavy whipping cream
flaky sea saltsuch as Maldon
Combine peanut butter, honey, and vanilla in a medium bowl; stir. Add oats and apricots; stir until thoroughly combined. Scoop mixture into individual sections of a silicone or regular ice cube tray. Press firmly to form cubes.
Combine the chocolate and cream in a glass bowl; place over a pan of simmering water. Stir constantly until the chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth, about 3 minutes. Spoon the chocolate mixture over each bite and smooth with a spatula. Lightly sprinkle the top of each bite with flaky sea salt. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour until chocolate is firm. Remove bites from trays, transfer to a covered container and refrigerate until you’re ready to eat.
