Prep Time 20 mins
Course Dessert, Snack
Servings 12 balls


  • 2 cup rolled oats, blended (or about 1½ cups oat flour) Use certified gluten-free oats if needed
  • 1/2 cup natural, smooth peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips


  • Blend the rolled oats in a food processor or blender on high speed for about 1 minute until you get a fine flour.
  • Add the remaining ingredients except for the chocolate chips right into the processor and pulse a few times to mix. You will get a crumbly texture dough that clumps together when squeezed between your hands.
  • Remove the blade from the food processor or transfer the dough into a seperate bowl. Mix in the chocolate chips.
  • Using a 1 tbsp cookie scoop, scoop out a heaping tablespoon and form into a tight ball between your hands. Once finished, place them in a covered container and pop them in the refridgerator to firm up for about 20 minutes. Enjoy!


  • Makes 12-13 balls. 
  • 1-2 balls per serving. 
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
