Makes about 20 small balls. I like them small enough to just pop into your mouth instead of take a bite out of.
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup raw oatmeal, gluten free if needed, I just used Quaker
- 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
1. In a small bowl, combine all ingredients. Stir with a wooden spoon or use your hands. Using your hands, shape the dough into small balls, about the width of a penny.
If the dough is too dry, add more peanut butter, if it is too sticky, add more oatmeal.
If you’re having issues rolling them into balls, stick it in the fridge for 20 minutes or so.
I did not like that taste or consistency of the balls once they were refrigerated. They do not have to be refrigerated after you are done, but you should store them in an air tight container.
You can store these in the fridge for a few weeks or in the freezer for months.
