  • 1 1/2 cups oats
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp vanilla protein powder for kids, can use other flavors too!
  • other mix-ins!
  1. In blender or food processor blend oats, then coconut to a more fine texture. You dont want them to be too fine- like flour.

  2. In food processor or stand mixer using paddle attachment- add all ingredients into bowl. Mix until all ingredients are all incorporated and evenly distributed. You wan the texture to be a little sticky and not too dry. If adding in extra mix-ins like nuts, dried fruit or other powders add a little more honey and peanut butter. 

  3. Roll into a ball the size of your preference. I like a 1 inch ball equals about 2 bites. Place on parchment lined cookie sheet. Place in freezer for two hours. Remove and place into an air tight container. Store in fridge for 1-2 weeks. Freezer for 3 months. To thaw- separate balls and let sit at room temp for about 15 minutes.
