Peanut Butter Snack Balls
Plant-based – Gluten-free – Vegan
1 cup of quick-cook dry oats (gluten-free if needed)
1 cup of natural peanut butter
¼ cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup ground flax seeds
½ teaspoon cinnamon
Optional add-ins: ¼ cup dairy-free chocolate chips, chopped nuts, unsweetened coconut flakes
1. In a large bowl, mix together wet ingredients. Add in your dry ingredients.
2. Form small balls with mixture (bit-sized works best).
3. Refrigerate for 1 hour or eat as is. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
-Always check to make sure your ingredients/products are gluten-free and vegan (if desired) before purchasing as manufacturers may change ingredients.
-If your recipe is dry and/or crumbly, add in a bit more peanut butter until you can form balls. If too soft, add in more oats or flax seed.
-You can substitute protein powder or almond flour for the dry oats.
-Any nut or seed butter can be used in place of peanut butter.
-In place of the flax seeds, you can try hemp seeds or ground almonds
-Agave nectar can be substituted for maple syrup or honey (if not vegan). Amount can be adjusted based on preference.
