No added oil pecan oat ball snacks.

I feel a little bit lazy for posting another quick recipe today, I made these for my pack lunch and just had toshare them. I am back working at Hillside animal sanctuary, which is full to the brim with lovely rescued animals (most from factory farming). So as a bonus, I’ve included some photos of some of the lovely animals!

2 tbsp golden caster sugar (optional)
1 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup whole grain spelt flour
a handful chopped pecans
a handful dark chocolate chips
6-8 whole pecans for decoration

Method:
Mix the mashed banana with the maple syrup, hazelnut milk and sugar, add the spelt flour and stir well. Mix in the oats, using your hands if necessary, and fold in the pecans and chocolate chips. Roll into about 6-8 balls and place evenly apart on a lined cookie sheet. Press a whole pecan into the top and gently press the cookies down slightly. Preheat the oven to 180c and bake for 25-30 minutes. Allow to cool completely before eating packing into lunch boxes.chicken hillside animal sanctuary

  1. Lazy? That’s one of the last words I would use to describe you. These look so delicious! And I love the shape and that they are packed with chocolate chips. Have fun with the animals. It sounds like such a loving place.
