Keep the oven off for these creamy, dreamy Nutella treats

These are great for picnics, parties or just for curing a late-night sweet tooth.

Yields 24

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup Nutella
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 8 chocolate graham crackers
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • Colored sprinkles for coating (optional)

Directions:

  1. Into a microwave-safe bowl, add the Nutella, peanut butter and raw honey. Heat on high for 30 seconds or until the mixture is warm and somewhat melted.
  2. Into a food processor, add the graham crackers, oats, flaxseeds and salt, and pulse on high until the mixture is very fine.
  3. Pour the warmed Nutella-peanut butter mixture into the food processor, and pulse until a ball forms.
  4. Using a cookie scoop, scoop out chunks of the dough ball, roll them into smaller balls, and place them onto a baking sheet lined with wax paper.
  5. Fill a small bowl with the colored sprinkles, and roll each ball into the sprinkles. Store the bites in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
