In a food processor put in all your ingredients and mix them until you have an even texture.

 

Once this is done, form little balls and roll them slightly in the oat flour. Put it in the fridge for about 20 mins.

After getting them out of the fridge, put them in a baking tray and brush each ball with olive oil evenly. Pop them in the oven for 20 mins at 170 degrees until brown.

Serve immediately with some delicious hummous and pitta bread.

For more crispiness you could always fry them in vegetable oil but we wanted to keep things healthy here ey?😉

Until the next recipe,
