yes, this is a recipe for dough. just dough. no need to cook. did i mention it’s gluten-free, vegan, and free of refined sugar outside of the chocolate chips? also it’s ready in five minutes.
6 T oat flour (or you can use 1.6 oz of oats and pulverize in your food processor)
6 Medjool dates, pitted
1-2 Tbsp unsalted pastured butter or coconut oil
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
a handful of chocolate chips
a pinch of powdered dessicated coconut (opt.)
If using oat flour, dump all of the ingredients except for the chocolate chips into a food processor and process until the mixture is smooth and forms a ball (this takes a while). Then add the chocolate.
If using regular rolled oats, add these to a small food processor first, pulverize them so you get something resembling oat flour, and then add the dates, butter, and vanilla and process.
After you have a ball of smooth dough, fold in the chocolate chips.
If using a large food processor, you may have to double the recipe in order to get the blades to reach it.
Don’t cook them! Just roll into balls and enjoy.

Incredibly rich. Incredibly sweet from the chocolate chips and dates. Does not taste gluten-free at all – just tastes like oatmeal chocolate-chip cookie dough. Couldn’t be easier. Highly recommended.

I have made these no less than ten times. Make them now. Seriously.
