- ⅓ cup oats
- 15 oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- ⅓ cup peanut butter or other nut/seed butter
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- ¼ cup maple syrup or honey
- ½ tsp salt
- ¼ cup mini chocolate chips (or other mix-ins)
- Line a small tray with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and set aside.
- Place oats in the bowl of a food processor. Process until they reach a flour-like consistency.
- Add the remaining ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, to the food processor. Blend until completely smooth, scraping down the sides a few times to ensure an even consistency.
- Transfer dough to a separate bowl and stir in chocolate chips.
- Form dough into small balls and place on sheet pan.
- Enjoy immediately or freeze for later use. Leftovers must be stored in the freezer or refrigerator.
- To freeze, transfer sheet pan to the freezer. Once frozen, transfer to a zip-top bag or reusable food storage container.
- When ready to enjoy, allow to thaw at room temperature for 5 minutes, or microwave for 10 seconds.
