Course: Breakfast, Dessert, Snack
Cuisine: American
Diet: Diabetic, Gluten Free, Vegetarian
Servings: 14 balls
Carbohydrates: 19g


  • Food processor (9-cup or larger)


  • 1 1/2 cups oats
  • 1/2 cup puffed rice cereal
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin hemp or flax seeds
  • 1/2 cup all natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips optional


  • Add the oats, cereal and seeds to a food processor (9-cup or larger), and process until the mixture becomes a powder. Remove the lid, and pour in the peanut butter and honey. Turn the processor back on and let it run for 60 seconds.
  • Remove the bowl from the food processor. Carefully remove the blade. Roll the dough into tightly packed tbsp-sized balls. (I like to use a standard size cookie scoop.) Next, drizzle the melted chocolate over the balls, or dip them. Refrigerate the balls for at least 1 hour and enjoy! Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.


*These are fine to not be refrigerated, if you’re taking them to go… I just prefer the consistency when they’re chilled.
Don’t own a food processor? Here is a food processor (9-cup or larger) I recommend.
