Yo mamma’s energy balls

Okay so this recipe isn’t mine, but it’s so good I had to share it with you guys!

My boyfriends-friends-mom made these (I’m not sure if this is her recipe or not) but he loved them so much he asked for the recipe so, of course, I could make them for him.

This recipe is super simple and the prep and mixing is quick, the long part is waiting for them to set up in the fridge!

Ingredients

1 c oatmeal
1 c toasted coconut
1/4 c chocolate chips/shaved chocolate
1/2 c peanut butter
1/2 c ground/whole flax seeds
1/4 cup honey or 100% maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla

I highly recommend ground flax seeds, because it holds the balls together more, but since I’m out of that, I just used regular flax seeds. They still hold together, but just not as awesomely.
