  1. Great idea! How can I make these without a food processor? I only have an immersion blender who can manage it all, except giving the oats a flour like consistency...
    Or can I simply use oat flour?

  2. How many are o.k. in one serving if the balls' diameter is about 1 inch?

  3. Rolled oats? The Low FODMAP guide gives a red traffic light to rolled oats based on the same quantity in the recipe above. So, how come?

    1. I think because spread out over the whole batch 1 cup of rolled oats would really only equal about 1 tablespoon per ball if that makes sense :)
