Here's the ingredients I used, but you could really use any spices or add-ins you like. I've seen some with added raisins or craisins, nuts, sunflower seeds, even crushed cereal. I used almond butter, but you could use any kind of spread you prefer, including peanut butter, soy butter, sunflower seed butter, etc.
1 c gluten-free oats
1/2 c dedicated peanut-free almond butter (chunky or creamy)
1/4 c coconut flakes
1/2 c safe chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life chocolate chips)
1/8 c chia seeds
1/8 c ground flax seeds
1/3 c honey or agave
1/4 tsp cinammon
1 tsp vanilla
Simply mix it all together, roll into bite-sized balls, and chill for 30 min on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. I found it difficult to roll the balls initially, so I chilled the dough for a bit first. The mixture was still a bit sticky, so keeping my hands wet with a bit of water was helpful. Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated. I also packed some in baggies and stashed them in the freezer for later.
(I used flax and chia seeds, but you could use 1/4 cup of just one of these instead.)
|I'll be happy I stuck these in the freezer later!|
