  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 4 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 cups quick cooking oats
  1. Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper and set aside.

  2. In a saucepan heat peanut butter, maple syrup, butter, vanilla, and salt on medium heat. Stir until melted and just combined. Do not let it cook. 

  3. Remove from heat and stir in cocoa powder and oats.

  4. Using a tablespoon (or a melon baller works great), place dollops of the mixture on cookie sheet. This should make about 20 bites.

  5. Let sit until cool enough to handle. Form into balls.

  6. Chill in the freezer until firm.

  7. Store in airtight container in refrigerator. They taste best cold!
