No-bake butterscotch oatmeal bites recipe

Yields about 16 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup gluten-free oats
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
  • 1/4 cup maple almond butter
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup or agave
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch chips
  • Pinch of sea salt

Directions:

  1. In a food processor, add the oats and the flax seeds. Pulse until the oats resemble flour. Add in the almond butter, maple syrup, vanilla and salt. Lightly pulse again until all the ingredients are mixed well.
  2. Scoop the mixture into a bowl and fold in the butterscotch chips. Roll the dough into balls trying to keep them uniform in size. Place the balls in an airtight container lined with wax paper. This will keep them from sticking together.
  3. Serve at room temperature or chilled. Keep leftovers in the refrigerator until ready to eat.
