Okay these are insanely good! I made two batches, one with dark chocolate and one with white (hubby is allergic to cocoa) and my kids and I cannot stop eating them!!! I made these about a year ago and just stumbled on the recipe again. I have NO idea why I stopped making them. Who needs dinner, right?
These will make a great snack or a fast breakfast! Pack them in your kids lunch for a yummy surprise!
1 c of old-fashioned oats
1 c of toasted coconut flakes
1/2 c of chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate)
1/2 c of almond butter (you can use whatever nut butter you have in your pantry)
1/2 c of flaxseed meal
1 tbl of chia seeds
1/3 c + 1 /4 tsp of honey (I used raw)
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1 pinch of salt
Mix it all together in a bowl and then refrigerate for 45 minutes. Remove and make into balls. I used a small scooper (1-1.5 inch) to press it in and then eject it. Rolled it with my hands to get a ball shape all around and then place in a airtight container to refrigerate. Will last 5-7 days but most likely they will be long gone before that!
