Not only are these easy and quick to make, but they are healthy enough to snack on while still tasting like a dessert. These have been a staple in our house for the past few weeks, I love how they give me my chocolate fix while also helping to make me feel full.
I apologize for not taking more pictures during the process of making them, if you have any questions just post them below.
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup old-fashioned oats (raw)
2/3 cup sweetened shredded coconut, toasted & cooled (350* for 10 minutes - ovens may vary)
1/2 cup ground golden flaxseed meal (I used Hodgson Mill brand)
6 tbsp mini chocolate chips (resist the urge to add more...they just end up at the bottom of the bowl)
Stir together peanut butter, honey & vanilla extract in a mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients until everything has been evenly mixed together. Roll the mixture into 1 inch balls, getting your hands damp will help with the stickiness. You can also refrigerate first before shaping - I am too impatient for this. Place the balls in a sealed container and refrigerate before serving. Enjoy!
This will yield 20 energy balls.
If you try these out, leave me a comment and let me know if you love them as much as I do!
