  • ¼ cup almond butter or peanut butter or your favorite 'nut' butter
  • cup vanilla unsweetened almond milk or
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips I used Ghirardelli 60% Chocolate Chips, but for vegan option, use vegan chips
  • 1 & ½ cups old-fashioned rolled oats, quick oats or gluten free oats, I used Flahavan's Irish Oatmeal


  • Prepare a wax paper-lined baking sheet and set aside.
  • Use microwave or heat almond butter, vanilla almond milk, dark chocolate chips in a saucepan over low heat until the chocolate melts.
  • Once the chocolate mixture is smooth and melted, stir in the oats and remove the saucepan from heat.
  • With a small ice cream scoop, (1 Tablespoon) scoop about 8 scoopfuls onto the wax paper-lined baking sheet.
  • Let them set in the fridge for about 10-15 minutes and good eating to you!


I stored mine in the fridge, but you can store them at room temperature or in the fridge. I like them both ways. Totally satisfying.
You could add in raisins or dried cherries for an added treat. These are really good in the morning or before bed or just as a snack. Love, Love, Love!!!
You can use regular old-fashioned rolled oats in place of gluten-free oats, so choose what fits your style!  I used Flahavans Irish Oats!  
For vegan, use vegan ingredients like chocolate chips like Lily's or Enjoy Life
