These delicious clean and nutritious balls are a fantastic recipe to make up and have on hand. They have a lovely taste and texture out of the fridge, but can live on the counter for a few days as well.
If you do not have oat flour, you can make your own. Add the oats to a food processor or blender and grind until you achieve a fairly smooth flour.
Add the flour to a medium sized mixing bowl.
Add the peanut butter, vanilla and honey to the bowl with the oats and stir very well until the mixture is totally incorporated.
Now add the rice cereal and the nut meal and gently stir to incorporate.
Once the mixture is fully and evenly incorporated form into balls. You can make them as big or small as you like. I prefer a size slightly smaller than a ping pong ball.
Now it’s time to coat in chocolate. Chop the chocolate into small pieces if you are not using chips and set up a double boiler (a mixing bowl set on top of a pot with a ½ inch of simmering water in it.
Once the chocolate is melted, let it cool a bit and then coat each of the balls in the chocolate. Place them onto a parchment lined plate for the chocolate to harden.
You can keep them in the fridge if you don’t plan on eating them in the next week or so or simply if you like them cold.
Add ½ cup of minced prunes for added sweetness and bit of a moister texture.
