wheat. it's a delicious ingredient. buuuut i also cut it out of my life approximately one month ago. it would make me so bloated + in pain + blah blah blah you don't need to know all the details, but i've made it my mission to find good, gluten free snacks that are easy to make + taste yummy! my sister + cousin actually made these bad boiz first, about a year ago, but i started making them much more often these past few weeks! they're small little balls of oats + chocolate chips + peanut butter + more goodness. recipe below!! :)

  2. roll into bite-sized balls + refrigerate or freeze

  3. enjoy!


INGREDIENTS for the bites

  • 1 cup of natural peanut butter

  • 2 cups of steel-cut oats

  • 1/2 cup of chocolate chips [or more!!]

  • 2/3 cups of honey

  • optional: coconut shreds! i've had different versions of these guys + they're all good, no matter what you add!

  • optional, pt. 2: protein powder! add some for an extra boost

guys - seriously, no joke when i say that i could eat a whole batch of these in one day. i usually make a double batch because they go. so. freakin'. fast. they're truly that good, + such a perfect gluten free snack when you're in a pinch.
