Ingredients

  • 1 cup rolled oats I used gluten free
  • 2/3 cup coconut flakes I prefer unsweetened, toast them first to bring out flavor
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seeds
  • 1/3 cup honey can use less if this amount is too sweet
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Add-in or substitution ideas (sub in dry ingredients for dry, wet for wet, etc.):

  • mini-chocolate chips
  • pepitas
  • dried cranberries
  • raisins
  • sunflower seeds
  • Sunbutter
  • almond butter
  • Nutella
  • Agave instead of honey
  • cocoa powder or protein powder
  • wheat germ
  • chia seeds

Instructions

  • Dump everything in a bowl.
  • Mix together. (Not gonna lie, I used my hands… it was easier than trying to mix with a spoon.)
  • Pop in the fridge for about 15 minutes so the mixture is easier to work with.
  • Form into balls (I used a melon baller, but you can use a cookie scoop or just your hands) and store in fridge so they maintain their shape better.
