- Gluten Free Oats
- Unsweetened cocoa powder
1. Blend 1 cup of oats in vitamix or food processor. Make sure your blender is completely dry. Blend until flour like consistency.
2. Add 1/8 cup of cocoa powder to your oat flour. Pulse. *Add more to your liking
3. Empty flour from blender into bowl. Set aside.
4. Blend 1 cup or 5-6 pitted dates. Pulse until just near jam consistency.
