No Bake Chocolate Oat Balls (Cookie Recipe – Vegan, GF, nutrient-dense)

These little No Bake Chocolate Oat Balls totally remind me of my childhood and feeling loved. My awesome mom would often make the traditional version of these for an after school snack (Thanks, Mom!). Then when I was old enough to use the stove, I loved to make them by myself.

Now that I have many of my own hungry snackers at home, I’ve pulled out and revamped the original recipe to match my cooking style.

I’ve modified the traditional recipe to make them vegan, less sugary, and more nutrient-dense with healthy fats and protein from hemp seeds, flax seeds, coconut oil, and almond butter. These cookies are naturally gluten-free if you use certified gluten-free oats.

This recipe can be whipped up in about five minutes and in your tummy within a half hour – even sooner if you don’t wait for them to chill and set up!
