I am totally hooked on these sweet balls of goodness. Vegan and gluten free, they are yummy for everyone, and it only takes about 10 minutes to prepare. (Plus some time in the refrigerator.)
- 1 cup dry oats
- 2/3 cup toasted coconut flakes
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup ground flax seeds
- 1/2 cup (vegan) chocolate chips
- 1/3 cup agave nectar or honey
- 1 tbsp chia seeds (optional)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Dump it all in a big bowl and stir until thoroughly mixed. Spread out, cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least half an hour. Then roll into balls of 1″ diameter or so, and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. You’ll get 20-25 balls, and they’ll last in the frig for a week (if you don’t tell anyone they’re there).
Thanks to Jill of paintedhouses.net for the recipe!
