Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bites

I know I'm a bit crazy with the recipe sharing lately but I like to share ones that I try and like. I decided to check out the `Power Snack' section of the Oh She Glows cookbook for an after school snack for the kids.  This was a hit.  There is maple syrup in it which is something I try not to have too much of but I definitely had to try one (or two!) of these.

The recipe calls for oat flour and I've never made it before but it was so easy!  Took just one minute.

1 1/2 cups of gluten free oats (I use regular oats)
2 TBSP coconut oil
2 TBSP natural peanut butter
1/4 cup of maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup almond flour (I didn't use this, I just made a little extra oat flour)
1/4 tsp sea salt
2 TBSP dark chocolate

1. In a blender, blend oats until it turns into a fine flour.
2.  In a large bowl combine coconut oil, peanut butter, maples syrup, and vanilla.  Beat until smooth.
3.  Add the oat flour (I just added more oat flour instead of making almond floor too) and salt and beat again.
4. Fold in chocolate (I just did regular chocolate chips for the kiddos)
5.  Roll into balls and put on a plate lined with parchment paper.
6.  Freeze for 5 minutes.  
7. Store in a freezer bag in the freezer and you have a snack always ready to go!

The kids liked them and so did I!  It only made 12 of them so at least if you go crazy over them, you won't end up eating too much ;)

Have a great weekend everyone!
