Little balls of peanut butter cookie dough goodness. They taste amazing and it's something you can feel good about eating! Made with whole grain oats and lightly sweetened with maple syrup - a decadent treat that won't leave you feeling guilty. I keep these in my freezer and have them whenever I need a snack or energy boost. —GlutenFreeBabe
