Chocolate Oat Balls
Chocolate oat balls can be used as a snack or even a treat depending on how much honey you use when you make them. It’s an easy five-minute mix of steel-cut oats, coconut milk, cocoa powder and honey for sweetness but it’ll take at least an hour for the steel-cut oats to soak the milk in and soften up. They become soft and creamy and they are very filling so they will keep you full for a very long time.
The mix should feel a bit moist at first once everything is combined - don’t worry, the oats will soak it all in.
They are best served chilled so keep them in the fridge, covered to prevent them from drying out. They’ll last in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
