Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 18


  • 1 cup unsweetened almond butter* (mine is very "liquidy")
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup gluten-free rolled oates*
  • 1 cup gluten-free instant oats*
  • 1/2 cup dairy-free chocolate chips


  1. Line baking sheet or container with parchment paper. Set aside.

  2. In a bowl, combine all wet ingredients and salt. Mix well.
  3. Add gluten-free oats and dairy-free chocolate chips. Mix until thoroughly combined.

  4. Spoon a heaping tablespoon into your hands and roll into bites (I coat my hands with coconut oil if mixture is too sticky). Place on parchment paper and freeze for 20 minutes until firm. Store in refrigerator.

Recipe Notes

*I use two different oats because my kiddos love the texture. You can use 2 cups of rolled oats or instant oats.  You can also blend (pulse a few times) 1 cup of rolled oats to give it the same texture as using the instant oats.  Each way turns out great!

*If your almond butter is not very liquidy you may want to add a couple tablespoons of melted coconut oil.
