Make if you have: peanut butter, honey, and oats
This recipe is a quick and easy way to make a grab-and-go snack. Chia and flaxseeds are filling and provide texture, while nut butter and chocolate chips combine to create a tried-and-true flavor pairing.
- 1 cup oats
- ⅔ cups shredded coconut
- ½ cup peanut or almond butter
- ½ chocolate chips
- ⅓ cup honey
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ½ cup ground flaxseed
Start by combining all of the ingredients into a bowl. You can use a spoon to mix but it might be easier to use your hands once the dough gets a little hard to stir. We added some cinnamon for a little extra sweetness, so feel free to do the same or add another spice if you’d like.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it refrigerate for 2 hours. This is so that the balls are easier to form; they’ll be super sticky and hard to work with if you skip this step!
Once the dough is ready, use your hands to roll it into balls that are about 1 inch in diameter.
Store leftovers in the fridge and enjoy!
