A Gluten-free, Dairy-free Whole Food Recipe

Your body doesn’t need any refined white sugar or unnatural sweeteners, so eat these as a treat. They are packed with protein and a whole grain. You can use agave nectar or choose your favorite natural sweetener. These are best stored and eaten from the freezer.

Ingredients:
16 oz. natural unsweetened peanut butter
Agave nectar* (to your desired sweetness)
3/4 blender full of old-fashioned rolled oats (not the instant kind)
Bowl full of brown crispy rice cereal, shredded coconut or sesame seeds (optional)

Directions:
1. Mix peanut butter and agave nectar together in a bowl.
2. Put oats in a blender and blend until they assume a powder-like texture.
3. Add oats to mixture and mix well. Adjust consistency if necessary.
4. Roll batter into small balls.
Optional: Roll balls in your choice of crispy rice, coconut or sesame seeds or leave them plain. Yields 35-40 powerballs.

*The goal is to make these as mildly sweet as possible and still enjoy the flavor.
