Healthy Cookie Dough Energy Bites (Gluten-Free!)
These healthy Cookie Dough Energy Bites are the perfect snack or dessert with that delicious peanut butter cookie dough flavour. Plus they are made with only a few simple ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry!
- 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!
