1 cup natural peanut butter (I used the kind with just peanuts and salt)
1/4 cup honey, OR 1/4 cup brown rice syrup for a vegan option
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup rolled oats (i used gluten-free)
pinch of salt
1/3 cup MINI chocolate chips (i used vegan chocolate chips)
2-4 extra teaspoons of water or some additional vanilla extract
In a medium bowl, combine your peanut butter, honey (or rice substitute) and vanilla extract
Stir in the oats and salt until well-combined
Add in the chocolate chips (test the consistency by pinching the mixture together. If it doesn't stick well, add some additional vanilla OR water. try just 1/2 teaspoon at a time until the mixture holds together when pinched).
Form balls using about 1 tablespoon of mixture at a time and pressing/rolling between your palms (1 tablespoon of mixture should make a 1" ball)
Store in tupperware at room temperature for 3 days, refrigerate for about a week, or even place some in the freezer
Enjoy your little bites of delight!
