Cookie Dough Balls


1 ½ cups gluten-free rolled oats

2 Tbsp coconut oil melted

2 Tbsp almond butter (or other favorite nut/seed butter)

¼ cup pure maple syrup

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

½ cup almond flour

¼ tsp sea salt

¼ cup cacao nibs


  1. Line a plate or tray with parchment paper.
  2. In a high speed blender or food processor, blend the oats (1 ½ cups) until you have a fine oat flour. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the melted coconut oil (2 Tbsp), almond butter (2 Tbsp), maple syrup (¼ cup) and vanilla (1 tsp) and beat with a hand mixer until completely smooth. Add the almond flour (½ cup), oat flour and salt (¼ tsp) and beat again. Fold in the cacao nibs (¼ cup).
  4. Roll the dough into small bites, a bit smaller than a ping pong ball. Place them on the plate with parchment and freeze for 15 minutes before enjoying. Store them in the freezer.
