I love peanut butter. I love chocolate. I love peanut butter and chocolate together! So today when the craving hit, I had to come up with something that didn’t involve making an oreo run. This is what I came up with:
Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls (No-Bake!)
1/2 c rolled oats
3/4 c natural peanut butter, at room temperature
2 Tbls cocoa powder
2 Tbls ground flax seed
2-3 Tbls liquid sweetener (I used half honey, half maple syrup)
chocolate chips (optional)
pinch of salt, if using unsalted PB
1. Put everything but the chocolate chips in the food processor and pulse until just combined. Add the chocolate chips and pulse a few more times until they’re incorporated but not chopped up too much. You could also mix this by hand. The texture will be a little different but they’ll taste about the same.
2. Roll the mixture into balls about 1 Tbls each, and place them
in your mouth on waxed paper.
3. Try not to eat them all at once!
