Do you ever crave a chocolate chip cookie, but you don’t want to turn on the oven and bake batches and wait for cookies to be ready? OR have you ever eaten cookie dough and gotten sick from the raw eggs? (shudder) Well, my friends, these little gems are coming to the rescue! A perfect little bite of chocolate, peanut butter, and oat goodness! These babies are full of protein, fiber, omega-3’s, and antioxidants to keep you going strong through your morning or afternoon or through the night – if you hide them and eat them as a bedtime snack while everyone else is sleeping! I personally would never do a thing like that…wink-wink!
1/2 cup peanut butter or any nut butter of choice
1/4 cup agave nectar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup gluten free flour (or whole-grain flour of choice)
4 tbsp. gluten-free rolled oats
2 tbsp. ground flax seed or ground chia seed
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients; mix thoroughly until a dough-like texture is formed. Scoop out a tablespoon of the mixture and use hands to roll into a ball. Place on baking sheet. Refrigerate a few hours or overnight. Store in refrigerator.
