Bet You Can't Eat Just One - Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Granola Balls RECIPE (Gluten-Free)
This recipe is for my highly addictive gluten-free oatmeal chocolate chip energy balls. I used gluten-free oats, Justin's Cashew Butter, and Enjoy Life Foods mini chocolate chips. This is a simple and easy to do recipe that anyone could do.
Soak the pitted Medjool dates in hot water to soften them.
Warm one tablespoon of coconut oil in a small saute pan. Once the oil has melted place the coconut flakes in the pan and warm them on medium until a golden color.
Warm the nut butter in the microwave for 10-15 seconds in a microwavable bowl until soft and spreadable.
Chop the dates up into small pieces. Place the dates, coconut, oats, nut butter, and raw honey into a food processor and process on high until all ingredients come together and are well-incoportated. The ingredients will ball up.
Take the oat mixture and place it in a medium mixing bowl with chocolate chips and stir well.
Using clean hands, take the oat and chocolate chip mixture and form one-inch balls. Place in a square pan. Once all balls have been created you can place them in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. You should have approximately a dozen balls.
- To maintain maximumÂ freshness, keep the oatmeal chocolate chip balls refrigerated.
