1 cup dry oatmeal
2/3 cup toasted coconut flakes
1/2 cup almond or peanut butter
1/2 cup ground flaxseed or wheat germ
1/4 cup chopped chocolate chips
1/4 cup chopped dates or raisins
1/3 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and mix until combined. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. After they are chilled roll into little balls and store in the refrigerator! (see that simple!)
- I purchase whole flax seed and then use a coffee bean grinder, when I need ground flaxseed. This way it is always fresh.
- The original recipe called for 1/2 cup chocolate chips, but you can add a 1/2 cup of anything. I like to use Dates, raisins and craisins!
