1 cup (dry) oatmeal (old-fashioned oats work best!)
1 cup toasted coconut flakes
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter (or any almond, cashew, etc butter)
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp. vanilla
Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. Let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour. Once chilled, roll into balls of whatever size you would like. (Mine were about 1/1/2-2″ in diameter.) Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.
(Kate note: I also added in a little pure maple syrup as well as a tad bit of maple extract and it was spectacular!)
Makes about 20-25 balls.
