Peanut Butter Bites
Prep Time: 15 minutes

1 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder, or use powdered (confectioner’s) sugar (optional)
1/4 cup flour (use wheat/gluten-free if needed)
1/4 cup natural peanut butter or other nut butter
1/4 cup honey
Put the oats in a food processor and pulse until they are a coarse texture, but not quite powdery. Put the cocoa powder or powdered sugar (optional) in a small shallow dish. In a medium bowl, combine the oats, flour, peanut butter (or other nut butter) and honey and mix until it forms a dough. (Add a little water if it is too dry).
