Super easy and yummy. What I love about this recipe I came up with is that it's packed with protein and the superfood maca! Maca, to be honest, is nasty, but it's packed with vitamins, minerals, and protein. Even the kids love these, though, so I'm feeling good about it.
No Bake Granola Balls
1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon maca powder
1/2 cup flax meal
1/4 - 3/4 cup shredded coconut
3 Tablespoons raw honey
1 cup natural nut butter (peanut, almond, cashew, sunflower, etc)
Mix all ingredients together. Place in the refridgerator for approx 20 minutes. Take out and mold into balls. Keep refrigerated. They'll be good for about a week or so.
These are a little dry. If you don't like them as dry, add more peanut butter.
