I legit can’t stop finding uses for this Moose Maple Butter. It’s cropping up all over my kitchen, whether it’s on a hot cross bun or hidden in these gooey little lovelies.
I’m not going to tell you these are healthy because they do have a fair bit of the butter in. But I bet they’re better for you than buying premade cookie dough – no additives or nasties in this recipe! You could make them with coconut oil or another nut butter to up the healthiness, maybe add chopped fruit instead of chocolate chips.
I’m really excited that these worked out, I’m definitely going to experiment making more things with oat ‘flour’ as it means things like this are instantly edible, no need to bake! I made my oat ‘flour’ in my NutriBullet but any blender will probably do a decent job.
- 1/2 mug of normal rolled oats
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
- 2 tbsp flaxseeds
- 1 tbsp butter (I used Moose Maple syrup butter)
- 1 tsp honey
- 6 tsp peanut butter
- Handful dark chocolate chips
- Pinch salt
Blast up your oats to make them into a fine powder. If you don’t have a blending device I guess you could leave them whole but the texture would be a bit grainy. Stir in a pinch of salt and the protein powder.
In a new bowl, melt the butter and stir into the peanut butter, add the honey and the chocolate chips and the flaxseeds. Gradually add the ‘flour’ mix to this wet mixture until you have a thick dough that you can roll around with your hands.
Roll into balls and keep in the fridge for whenever you need a sugary hit! I’ve been eating them with yoghurt at breakfast for a yummy cookies and milk taste.
