    I am making this recipe today because it looks yummy. Got it from Danielle Omar – How many balls does the mixture make? I plan to use a measuring spoon and do 1 TBSP per serving. Thoughts?

      Hi Alethea! I get 16 – 2 bite balls from the mixture. I haven’t measured with a tablespoon measure but using that you’d likely get more than 16. Please let me know how it goes!

        Marisa – I made them but had a hard time getting the mixture to stay together. I plan to make again today and will add some water. Any other thoughts? By the way, I love the taste.

          Hmmm. I wouldn’t add water as that would make the oats too soft. Are you using old fashioned oats? That’s what I used to test the recipe.

          You might try adding a bit more almond butter. Natural almond butter can sometimes be thick, other times thinner. I’d guess that’s the variable. Also, once mixed, chill the mixture for a few minutes in the fridge so that they are easier to roll. Please do let me know how this goes!
