Gluten-free, no-bake chocolate covered peanut butter, chocolate chip, coconut, oat bites…

I’m always craving a little treat after dinner, especially something involving chocolate and peanut butter. My solution: Having these in my freezer at all times. They’re incredibly easy to make. All it takes is combining peanut butter, maple syrup, coconut, oats and chocolate chips, forming into balls, freezing for a bit, then dipping in chocolate.
