Ingredients

  • 1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Organic Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 cup Enjoy Life Semi-Sweet Mini Chocolate Chips
  • 1/2 cup Bob’s Red Mill Golden Flaxseed Meal
  • 1/2 cup Sprouts Creamy No Stir Peanut Butter
  • 1/4 cup Sprouts Organic 100% Raw Honey
  • 1 teaspoon Sprouts Organic Vanilla Extract

Instructions

  1. Add rolled oats and flax seed to food processor and blitz until blended well. Break up the oats so the texture is a nice grain but not a flour.

  2. Add in peanut butter, honey, and vanilla. Blend again until well combined.

  3. Transfer to bowl and stir in chocolate chips, or add chocolate chips and pulse a few times to combine. Transfer bowl or food processor work bowl to fridge and chill 20-30 minutes to make dough easier to roll.

  4. Scoop the mixture into balls and press mixture in firmly. Roll between palms to form rounded balls. You may have to work the dough in your hands if it gets crumbly, but just keep pressing it together to form a solid piece.

Recipe Notes

  • Kids version: After you roll the dough into balls, either roll the balls into a small bowl filled with sprinkles or just sprinkle on. Use natural sprinkles or ones with no artificial dye.
  • Paleo: Replace the rolled oats with 2/3 cup almond flour and 1/3 cup coconut flour. Use almond butter instead of peanut butter 1:1.
  • Vegan: Use vegan chocolate chips and maple syrup or agave nectar instead of honey.
  • Cookie scoop: I used a 1.5 tablespoon cookie scoop.
