No-Bake Coco-Nutty Balls

These are amazing.  I want to marry them.

INGREDIENTS

  • 16 oz. jar of nut butter (I like TJ’s raw creamy unsalted almond butter best)
  • 3 cups oats (I use Quaker Old Fashioned)
  • 1/2 cup ground flax seeds
  • 1/2 cup goji berry powder
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder or 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (or a little of both!)
  • healthy sweetener: I do a generous squirt of honey + 10 drops of liquid stevia
  • dash of sea salt
  • dash of cinnamon
  • dash of glycerin vanilla
  • unsweetened shredded coconut

PREPARATION

  • Mix all ingredients (except coconut) together–start with dry first, then fold in wet til the consistency will hold together in a little ball. You can get the small one of these cookie scoops and make it a whole lot faster.
  • Roll them in coconut (or wheat germ, cocoa powder…whatever you like). Chill and enjoy!
  • Tip: modify as you like, swap out chocolate chips for raisins, cranberries, etc.

Amazingly handy to have around as a quick snack between meals or to pack in lunch boxes.
