Power Balls - recipe

I have this recipe that i was making before I knew I was celiac and it is GF & LF... yeah.
I only had to make sure that some of the ingredients were GF which wasn't hard at all.
These are great little morsels and easy to make. If you can have Pure Oats then you can have these.

1 cup of Pure Oats (Only Oats)
5 brown rice cakes, crumbled
1 cup chopped dried fruit (apricots, cranberries, raisins, dates)
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds chopped or pulsed in food processor
1/4 cup ground flax seed and/or sunflower seeds
pinch salt
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup soy milk or regular milk

In large bowl, toss together the oats, rice cakes, dried fruit, coconut, pumpkin seeds, flaxseed and salt. In a small saucepan, combine the cocoa, peanut butter and maple syrup and set over medium heat. Cook until melted and smooth, stirring often. Remove from the heat and stir in the soy milk until well blended and smooth.
Pour the chocolate mixture over the dry ingredients and stir until well combined. Put bowl in the fridge until the mixture is cool. Shape into balls. Store them covered, in the fridge.
They are great frozen too!
