These are super simple and also healthy. They contain oats and peanut butter that have a good effect on blood sugar and they also contain flax seeds (with omega 3) and chia seeds (power food). They are sweetened with honey or agave, I used agave this time. You don’t have to feel guilty for having one of these that’s for sure.
1 cup oats
2/3 cup toasted unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup peanut butter (best to have it rather soft when you make the balls)
1/2 cup ground flax seeds
1/3 cup honey or agave syrup
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp vanilla extract
Mix all the ingredients in a medium bowl (I used my Kitchen Aid to make it easier). Cover the bowl and put in the fridge for at least 30 minutes so it will be easier to make the balls later.
Form the balls with your hands. It may be necessary to squeeze them a bit to make them stick together. Store in a air tight container in the fridge. They will keep for about a week in the fridge.
If they are too dry you can add an extra tablespoon of honey or peanut butter. If they are too wet you can add oats.
