This one I learned from Nikki. It is wonderful!
1 1/4 cups rolled oats
2 tablespoons “power mix-ins” chia seeds, flaxseeds, hemp seeds, or additional rolled oats
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
4 tbsp chopped peanuts OR 2 tbsp peanuts and 2 tbsp craisins
- Place all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl: oats, power mix-ins, nut butter, sweetener, vanilla extract, salt, mix-ins, and any other spices you’d like to add. Stir to combine. If the mixture seems too wet, add a bit more oats. If it’s too dry, add a bit more nut butter. It should resemble a somewhat sticky dough that holds together when lightly squeezed. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to set (this will make the balls easier to roll later on).
- Remove the bowl from the refrigerator and portion the dough into balls of desired size. (I use a cookie scoop to make mine approximately 1 inch in diameter).
- The balls can be refrigerated for up to 5 days in an airtight container or frozen in Ziplock bags for up to 3 months. Enjoy!
