We love our No Bake Sunbutter Cheerio Balls, but we wanted to try something with oats instead. These Sunbutter Oatmeal Balls are very simple to make and are a yummy, healthy treat. We prefer them refrigerated, but they are also very good eaten right away. You can omit the powdered sugar coating if you prefer. If desired, you can stir in some safe chocolate chips, raisins, craisins, flaked coconut, or anything that sounds good to you. We decided to make this batch plain.
No Bake Sunbutter Oatmeal Balls
1 cup instant oats
1/2 cup oat flour (I blended 1/2 cup instant oats in the blender)
1/2 cup corn syrup or honey
1/2 cup Sunbutter
1/4 - 1/2 cup safe chocolate chips, raisins, craisins, flaked coconut, etc. - optional
Confectioner's sugar for rolling - optional
Thoroughly combine all of the ingredients except for the confectioner's sugar. Roll the mixture into bite-sized balls. Coat with confectioner's sugar if desired. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to eat.
My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 12 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.
