These are for the family win, and they can be taken to school because these hits are peanut free, nut and seed free. Adapted from allerygirleats.com these balls taste very similar to Cliff bars, and are so very easy to make. Hope you enjoy!
400 grams black beans (Can of, rinsed well)
4 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups rolled oats (old fashion)
1/2 cup coconut flakes (Unsweetened)
1/3 cup chocolate (either chips or bakers chocolate, roughly chopped)
1. In a blender, Vitamix, or food processor blend black beans, honey, coconut oil, and cocoa together until a smooth paste is formed. Once you think you have blended it enough, blend it for 30 seconds more.
2. Transfer black bean paste to a bowl and mix in rolled oats, coconut and chocolate until very well combined. The same applies here, one you feel it is well mixed, mix it again!
3. Roll into balls, either weigh them out or eyeball it. If you weigh them out, take the overall weight of the dough and divide by 30 to get the weight for each ball (roughly 20g). When rolling into balls, the dough may crumble a bit, give it a squeeze (like dry play dough) and gently roll between your two hands.
**Keep refrigerated. They are good for up to 3 weeks.
