Being newly gluten free (and feeling marvelous!), it can be a bit of a challenge sometimes to find things that are okay for me to eat, especially when I'm not at home. The first week of Bible study, my friend Shelley R. brought these Powerball Cookies. Yay! Something I could have, and yummy too!
I asked Shelley for the recipe and made a batch to bring to Bible study last week - and they were so good everyone ate them up! I just made more yesterday so I could have some at home. So for all you who asked, here's the recipe:
1 cup peanut butter 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1 cup honey 1 cup chocolate chips
3 cups old fashioned oats 1 cup fruits/nuts combo
Mix together peanut butter and honey; stir in flaxseed and then gradually add the oats. Stir in chocolate chips (I used 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips) and fruit/nuts combo (I used 1/2 cup chopped pecans and 1/2 cup chopped Craisins.)
Form into Ping-Pong sized balls. (I used gloves for this so it wouldn't stick to my hands.) If I'm taking them somewhere, I place each ball into a mini cupcake paper; otherwise I just place the balls in an airtight container.
Refrigerating the Powerballs overnight keeps them from being sticky. These also freeze well. Makes about 3 dozen, depending on the size of the balls.
