Ingredients

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup vegan chocolate chips such as Enjoy Life
  • 1 ½ tbsp coconut oil

Instructions

  1. Start by making your oat flour if all you have is oats, and no oat flour. (Simply grind the oats in a nutribullet with the milling blade, process in a food processor, or even blend in a blender, until fine.) 

  2. Then mix the oat flour with the peanut butter and maple syrup. 

  3. Once this forms a dough and you can't 'see' the flour anymore; roll into small balls. 

  4. Set aside until you melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil on the stove. (I use two small pots for this next step; the larger pot has water in it and the smaller one sits inside the larger one touching the water, but the water is not high. The smaller pot has the chocolate and coconut oil in it. If you have a double boiler then use that.)

  5. Once the chocolate and oil is melted; roll the balls in it til they are completely covered. 

  6. Then move to a parchment covered baking sheet to cool. 

  7. When all the balls are covered in chocolate, place the baking sheet in the freezer for the chocolate coating to solidify. Enjoy!!
