Cookie balls, brownie balls, protein balls—these trendy, roll-able treats usually have a few things in common. They’re raw or no-bake. They’re made with oatmeal. And they’re almost always soft and a little gooey, unless you freeze them first. This recipe? None of the above! Using gluten-free and paleo-friendly coconut flour, plus all your favorite dessert add-ins – peanut butter, dark chocolate chips, shredded coconut and honey – you’ll roll together a sweet, chunky dough that’s baked for just a few minutes for the perfect crispy-chewy, cookie-like finish.
