Chewy Peanut Butter BallsJust look at that texture! I want a bite..Chewy Peanut Butter Balls


  • 3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup oat flour – use gluten free if needed (simply grind oats in a blender to a fine flour)
  • 5 tbsp maple syrup/liquid sweetener of choice


  1. In a mixing bowl, add the peanut butter, vanilla and maple syrup – whisk together until smooth.
  2. Mix in the oat flour until a thick consistency forms. Scoop out tablespoons of the mixture and roll into balls with your hands (the balls will be soft so they won’t hold their shape too well) and place onto a tray lined with baking paper and place in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  3. When you remove from the freezer, the dough will be easier to shape – shape into balls again. Store in the fridge or freezer and enjoy!
