Ingredients
 

  • 1 ½ cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup vegan chocolate chips
  • ¾ cup unsalted unsweetened creamy peanut butter
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt

Instructions
 

  • In a medium sized bowl add your peanut butter, maple syrup, vanilla and mix until well incorporated together.
  • Now add your oats, salt and chocolate chips. Mix well until your ingredients are incorporated together. You will want to make sure your oats are evenly coated in the wet mixture.
  • Take a heaping tablespoon of dough into the palm of your hand and roll mixture into a ball. Continue this process until all your dough is gone. I like to use the squish and roll method. First squish the dough together in the palm of your hands back and forth a few times, then roll until a ball forms.
  • Once your bites are all rolled place them in an air tight container and store them in the refrigerator.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

  • Feel free to use whatever kind of chocolate chips you prefer. I used semi-sweet but you could use dark chocolate or even cut up chocolate as well. 
  • If you don't have peanut butter on hand any nut butter will work for these.
