A vegan flourless cookie dough bites recipe.
The bulk of this recipe is old fashioned oats (high in soluble fiber) and there isn't any flour. This will help to prevent a blood sugar spike by slowing down digestion and in turn counter the sugar in the recipe.
I'm not going to say these are gluten free because of the trace amounts that can be found in most oatmeal. But it is pretty close to gluten free if you don't have any serious reactions to a minute amount of gluten. It's also free of refined oils but still taste amazing. Warning, these are addicting.

Place the dry ingredients: chocolate chips, oats, confectioner's sugar, pecans, coconut, salt and cranberries, into a food processor and process for about 15 to 30 seconds. Or until ingredients are broken up. We don't want to make flour out of the oatmeal, just break it up into smaller bits.
Place wet ingredients: maple syrup, peanut butter, vanilla, coffee in a small mixing bowl and mix together using a wisk. Pour on top of dry ingredients in the food processor and process for another 15 to 30 seconds. Or until well combined. Check to see if the dough will form into a ball. If you see it's not, try processing it a little more or adding a little more coffee. We want it to be somewhat crumbly and only wet enough to form a ball. After you get it to form into a ball, scoop the dough out into 1 tablespoon blobs and form into well rounded balls by rolling them in your hands and place on wax paper.
Place the 3 tablespoons of confectioner's sugar into a small mixing bowl. Roll each ball into the sugar, coating the outside. Shake excess sugar off and place back on the wax paper.
They are ready to eat.
