AH-MAZING! These cookies dough balls taste like butterfingers and those were one of my favorites when I was growing up! The kids and I made these little delights as part of our homeschool nutrition class today, and it was impromptu, really it was the kids idea to make a “healthy treat” so we did! I love that about homeschool! We googled some ideas, took advantage of what we had in the cupboard and came up with totally raw, yummy and nutritious little snack! And we have decided it is a blog worthy recipe! Β So without further ado here is what you will need for these little yummies πŸ™‚

  • 1/4 cup natural no sugar added peanut butter (we used chunky)
  • 1/4 cup raw almond butter (also chunky)
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 2 tsp no alcohol vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cup raw gluten free oats
  • 3/4 cup shredded no sugar added natural shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup raw chia seeds
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup chopped dark chocolate (72% or higher)
  • a pinch of sea salt

Mix all ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl, until well combined, then with clean hands πŸ˜€ take the mixture Β and roll them into 1″ balls until all the mixture has been used, place them on a plate and stick them in the fridge for about 30 minutes before devouring! This makes about 20 balls…Enjoy!
