Chocolate Peanut Butter Oat Balls
Sweet, peanut buttery, crunchy. I added the cocoa at the last minute, you could totally omit it. It tasted good without it, as well! I added some options below to better suit it to your preference!
Total time: 5 minutes
1 cup oats
2/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup peanut butter (natural)
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon flaxseeds
1 tablespoon cocoa
What to do:
1) Combine all ingredients in a bowl or food processor.
2) Roll into balls. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve!
***Lots of options for this one:
-replace maple syrup with honey or agave
-use whatever seeds or nuts you want to add
-use almond or sunflower seed butter in place (to help make it school-friendly)
-omit coconut or oats and add more of the other
-omit cocoa if not a chocolate fan
