Oat and Peanut Butter Energy Nibbles

Oat and Peanut Butter Energy Nibbles

I'm a peanut butter addict, and also a big fan of raw treats and little bites. These easy-to-make raw peanut butter and oat balls are a great source of protein and a good healthy snack besides. They are not too sweet, with only a small amount of maple syrup and coconut sugar added, along with some dried cherries and some extra dark chocolate. You may want to have more than just a few nibbles, but they are surprising filling if you only just have one little ball.

I know it's been quiet around here lately, but with the blazing unseasonable heat wave that has been going on for a few weeks here in London, Ontario, I haven't much felt like cooking. And to think, just before this started, there was talk of turning on the furnace.

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • almond flour as needed
  • Mix together all of the ingredients except the almond flour until well blended. If the mixture is too moist, add a few tablespoons of almond flour so that the mixture is still moist but dry enough to handle.

Makes about 12 to 15 balls
