Chocolate Cinnamon Fat Balls


Yields 14

Takes 10 minutes total


  • 1 cup gluten free oats

  • 1 cup walnuts, almonds or other nut

  • ⅓ heaping cup cocoa, cacao or chocolate protein powder

  • 1 ½ heaping tbsp ground cinnamon

  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed or ground chia seeds

  • 1 tsp maca powder (optional)

  • ½ cup nut butter of choice

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil or butter (optional)

  • 1 tbsp vanilla

  • few dashes of sea salt


1. In your food processor, add the walnuts and the oats. Grind until it is close to a flour consistency.

2. Add: cocoa/cacao powder, cinnamon, sea salt, maca powder, flaxseed. Pulse until combined.

3. Add the nut butter, coconut butter or oil and the vanilla. Blend until well incorporated. Two things: If the dough isn't sticking together, add more peanut butter. Second, if you want a deeper chocolate and cinnamon taste, add more! I added a few more shakes of each.

4. Roll them into bites. Dust them with cinnamon and roll them into the cocoa powder. Store them in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or the freezer for longer.
