1 cup (dry) oatmeal (quick oats stick together better)
2/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup ground flax seed
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
1-2 TBS chia seeds
1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup peanut butter (I prefer chunky--can also use other nut butters instead)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Stir all dry ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. Add last three ingredients and mix well. Cover and let chill in the refrigerator for 20-30 min.
Once chilled, roll into balls of whatever size you would like. (Mine were about 1" in diameter.) Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.
Makes about 20-25 balls.
Delicious--tastes like No-Bake Cookies, but much healthier! Recipe adapted from here. This is a pretty versatile recipe--you can cut out some ingredients (choc chips, chia) and add others (sunflower seeds, chopped almonds). The original recipe has links to other variations--check them out!
