A yummy on-the-go snack! Made with whole ingredients like rolled oats and nut butter, these little balls pack a nutritious punch while keeping you energized until your next meal. Great for school snacks (nut-free version), after workouts, or on the way home from work!:)

The Essentials:
• 1-cup almond butter (If nut-free, you can use sunflower seed butter)
• 1⁄4-cup real maple syrup or raw honey
• 2 Tsp. vanilla extract
• one 1⁄2-cups of gluten-free rolled oats
• 1⁄2-cup unsweetened shredded coconut (organic if possible)
• 1/3 cup chocolate chips
• 2 Tbsp. chia seeds
• 2 Tbsp. hemp seeds
• 3 Tbsp. protein powder (chocolate or vanilla)
• 2-4 Tsp. of water or additional vanilla extract
• pinch of salt

The How-Tos:

1. Add the nut butter, maple syrup or honey, and vanilla extract to a mixing bowl and stir together.

2. Add oats, coconut, chia seeds, hemp seeds, protein powder, and salt. Stir again until well mixed. Then add the chocolate chips. (If the mixture doesn’t stay together when pinched, add additional water or vanilla, one teaspoon at a time, until the desired consistency is reached.)

3. Use a melon baller or your hands to make one-inch balls and place them on a plate.

4. Store in the fridge for up to one week or freeze for later use.

5. Enjoy!

* Caution: 2 is one serving!!:)
