Energy and Nutrition in one bite!

How about a fun recipe that I just so happen to be addicted to? I cannot help myself. These are too good–but not too good to be true! They’re easy to put together and best of all–HEALTHY! Especially for mommies on the go, these have saved my life! Nutrient dense is the way to go and they can even be eaten as dessert. #sweettooth I’ve posted the recipe below. Try them and tell me how you like them! I grabbed a couple of these for breakfast with orange juice with a shot of apple cider vinegar after my workout this morning. I would love your feedback when you try them! Happy “no baking”!

1 cup (dry) oatmeal (I used old-fashioned oats) 2/3 cup toasted coconut flakes

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup ground flaxseed or wheat germ

1/2 cup chocolate chips or cacao nibs (optional) Can also add dried fruit

1/3 cup honey or maple syrup

1 Tbsp. chia seeds (optional)

1 tsp. vanilla extract

Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. Cover and let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour. 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.
