Ingredients: (makes 12 balls)
½ cup natural peanut or almond butter (If you’re using regular peanut butter, skip adding the syrup.)
¼ cup coconut palm syrup, honey or maple syrup (optional)
1 tsp. vanilla extract (Optional, if using vanilla protein powder.)
⅓ cup protein powder (This is optional for additional protein. We recommend a brand with natural sweetener such as Vega Protein with Greens for a non-dairy version.)
⅓ cup ground flax and chia seeds
⅓ cup unsweetened coconut
½ cups rolled oats
1 tablespoon Mini Chocolate chips (if desired)
1-2 tablespoons Milk or dairy free milk to moisten mixture (if needed).
- In a large bowl, mix everything together until you’re able to form balls that stick together. You can use additional peanut butter or milk, if needed, to hold balls together. Next, you’ll form this into 12 balls and place in an airtight container. Lastly, you’ll let them chill for about 30 minutes.
- Eat and enjoy! They can store for up to one week in the fridge or 1 month in the freezer.
