  • Large bowl
  • Spoon
  • Baking sheet


  • 1 cup Creamy nut or seed butter I used homemade
  • 1/3 cup Honey or brown rice syrup or maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups Rolled oats use gluten-free if needed
  • 1/4 cup Ground flaxseed
  • 3 tbsp Brewer’s yeast
  • 1/2 tsp Ground cinnamon
  • 1-2 tbsp melted coconut oil or avocado oil
  • 1/3 cup Mini chocolate chips use dairy-free if needed


  • In a large bowl, mix the nut/seed butter and sweetener until well combined.
  • Add the oats, flaxseed, brewer’s yeast, and cinnamon. Stir until almost mixed, adding 1-2 tablespoons of melted oil if needed. Then add the chocolate chips and stir until evenly distributed.
  • Place the bowl in the freezer for 10 minutes (or the fridge for 20 minutes). This will make it easier to form the bites.
  • Using a small scoop or spoon, scoop out portions and roll them into balls between your palms. You should get about 24 bite-sized balls.
  • Store the bites in the fridge for up to two weeks or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

  • Place the bites in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze for 15 minutes. Once chilled, you can stack them in an airtight container and store them in the fridge or freezer.
