Chocolate & Oat Bars/Balls

I got this recipe from The Fairyland Cottage here.

We quite often have banana freezer balls so I thought I would also do these as balls. Here's the recipe:

2 cups rolled oats, mixed together with 1 cup granola and a good pinch of salt. Melt 4 tablespoons coconut oil. Add in 1/2 cup carob/cocoa powder, 1 cup of any nut butter (I warmed it to make it easier to mix in), 1/2 cup proper maple syrup and a teaspoon vanilla extract.

Add the wet ingredients into the oat mixture and mix together well.  Now, you can either put these into a 7" x 9" base lined tin, carefully mark out bars before putting into the freezer for about an hour. Turn out break up into the bars and store in a container in the fridge.

OR, you can roll them into walnut sized balls (I use a 1" ice cream scoop), flash freeze on a tray, pack into a container then remove them one at a time from the freezer to eat. I managed to make 22:

I was freezing in bed last night, shivering away. Last night was slightly warmer than the night before and I didn't feel cold then, so reckon it might have been my vaccination. Feel fine today apart from a slight twinge at the injection site.

    1. Just a regular set of measuring cups. I think the cup is 250ml.

    1. They are hard on the teeth straight from the freezer but fine after a few minutes.

  3. Interesting side effects to your vaccination. Australia is getting all their vaccinations starting soon too. We have bee SO fortunate over heard with regards to COVID19.

    1. Yes you have been lucky but your government reacted quickly on international travel. That lockdown probably saved you and we should have done it. I think our government were told it was like flu initially and they were prepared for that. Our death toll is way too high and still climbing.
