  • 1 cup peanut butter (I used Nuts n’ More Birthday Cake flavored Peanut Butter–*noted this brand has added whey protein in it therefore it is not vegan. Use pure peanut butter for vegan option)
  • 3 TSBP chia seeds
  • 2 cups GF-certified rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup sugar-free maple syrup (can use real maple syrup)
  • dash cinnamon
  • dash sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 TBSP raw cacao nibs
  • 2 tsp raw cacao powder
  • dash almond milk (*only add if mixture is too dry)


  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend well until dough is formed.
  2. Roll dough into small bite-sized balls and set aside until all dough is used.
  3. If batter is too dry, add a small amount of almond milk to soften.
  4. Let set in fridge and enjoy!
