Chokladbollar is a chocolatey Swedish treat with rolled oats at their base. While many prepare these as a classic no-bake recipe, we prefer to toast the oats before hand (for both flavor and safety). This recipes includes a touch of coffee to enhance the chocolate flavor but if you’d prefer to omit this from the recipe, feel free to substitute warm water or milk.


  • 2 cups Maine Grains Organic Rolled Oats

  • 1/2 cup butter (room temperature)

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder

  • 3 tablespoons coffee

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Evenly spread the rolled oats on a rimmed baking sheet and toast in the oven at 350°F for 10-15 minutes (until just toasted).
  • Once cooled, place 1/2 cup of the toasted oats into a blender or food processor. Pulse until a coarse, floury consistency is achieved.
  • In a mixing bowl, stir together the butter, sugar, and vanilla until smooth.
  • Mix the coffee and cocoa together, then add to the butter mixture. Stir to incorporate evenly.
  • Add the ground oat flour, the remaining toasted rolled oats, shredded coconut, and salt. Mix together until evenly combined. It is easiest to use your hands here. 
  • Pinch off small pieces of dough (about 1-2 tablespoons) and roll it between your hands to form small balls.
  • Coat with shredded coconut or pearl sugar and enjoy!
