Creamy peanut butter – ⅔ cup (160g)
Rolled oats – Gluten-free – 1 cup
Honey – 1 ½ tbsp
Chocolate chips – ¼ cup
Flax seed – ¼ cup (40g) – optional


• In a mixing bowl, blend all ingredients until thoroughly mixed.
• Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes after covering with plastic wrap.
• Once the dough has chilled, roll it into 1-inch (2.5 cm) balls. (To make rolling easy and avoid sticky hands, apply a little layer of butter or oil to the palm of your hands.)
• On a cutting board or work surface, spread a thin coating of oats and chocolate chips and roll the balls in it. Roll each ball between your hands to evenly distribute the oats and chocolate chips.


If you're allergic to peanuts or just dislike the taste of it, you can add other
nut butter alternatives to this recipe that are rich in protein, such as almond and pistachio butter.
