No Bake Energy Balls

No-Bake Holiday Energy Balls

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups rolled oats

  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds, flaxseeds, sunflower seeds

  • 1/2 cup nut butter of choice — peanut butter, almond, etc.

  • 1/3 cup sticky liquid sweetener of choice — honey or maple syrup

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Unsweetened coconut flakes

Instructions

  1. Place all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl: oats, seeds, nut butter, sweetener, vanilla extract, salt, chocolate chips, and cinnamon (or 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).

  2. Remove the bowl from the refrigerator and portion the dough into balls of desired size.

  3. Top with unsweetened coconut flakes and enjoy!
