Choc_Peanut Butter Balls

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 Cup (Dry) Oats (I used Quick Oats, although you can use gluten free oats if making GF)
  • 2/3 Cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • ½ Cup peanut butter
  • ½ Cup ground flax seed
  • 1/3 Honey (I use Rice Syrup)
  • 1/4 Cup unsweetened cocoa powder or raw cacao powder
  • 1 Tablespoon chia seeds (optional)
  • 1 Teaspoon of vanilla extract or ½ teaspoon of organic vanilla paste

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed together. Cover with cling wrap and chill in the fridge for at least half an hour, to make the mix easier to mold.
  2. Once chilled, roll into balls, whatever size you like (mine were about 1” in diameter.) I also covered them in extra coconut. Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week. (if they last that long!)
