  • 1 cup runny natural creamy peanut butter or almond butter
  • 3 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup oats divided (certified gluten-free if necessary)
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • teaspoon Himalayan pink sea salt
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup walnuts chopped


  1. Place a piece of parchment paper on a large plate and set aside.
  2. Pulse ½ cup of the oats in a food processor until it reaches a flour-like consistency.
  3. Add oat flour and all remaining ingredients to a large mixing bowl and stir until combined.
  4. Note: If your peanut butter is thick, place it in the microwave for 20-30 seconds.
  5. Scoop the batter using a tablespoon and use clean hands to roll into balls. Place balls on the prepared plate. Once the batter is used up, place balls in the freezer to firm up. Enjoy chilled.
