When it comes to desserts, these are pretty healthy, and tasty to boot. These can easily be made gluten-free, and peanut-free, by changing out the oats with GF ones, and using almond butter, respectively.
Feel free to mix in whatever dried fruits you want. I personally hate raisins, so dried cranberries are a great substitute for me. But go crazy! Also, ground flax seed is cheap when bought in bulk, but could be difficult to find. A substitute of chia seeds would work fine, but if you can’t find flax seeds, you won’t be able to find chia seeds. So the every day switch would be wheat germ. Sounds gross, but its good for you and you don’t even taste it.
- 1/2 cup non-dairy chocolate chips (I use Guittard semi-sweet)
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries (or whatever you want to throw in there, like raisins. But gross.)
- 1 1/2 cup oats (make these gluten-free no problem)
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons of maple syrup (agave works too)
- 1 tablespoon of ground flax seeds
Mix all the ingredients into a bowl, minus the chocolate chips.
Melt the chocolate chips and mix half of it into the bowl.
Roll the dough into little balls, and push into a lined or lightly-oiled mini-muffin tin. You can use a regular sized tin as well, they just will be bigger.
Coat the top of the cups with the remaining chocolate, and refrigerate for about an hour.
