Prep time: 10 min / Cook time: none

These quick and easy balls are perfect for kids and adults alike! Eat them as an after school snack, pre-dinner filler, or dessert. With minimal ingredients, they are healthy and provide a yummy snack to feel good about eating! These oat balls are packed with protein and good flavor (that may or may not make you addicted.) Try batch making these on Sundays (I make about 10-20) for the week and always have on hand as a healthy alternative to a junky sweet treat.

Ingredients: 

  • 1/2 cup of rolled oats (a little less if you want them stickier)
  • 1 tbsp. of chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp. of ground flax seeds
  • 1 tbsp. of ground coconut flakes
  • 1 tbsp. of agave syrup
  • 1/4 cup of peanut butter
    • Try using PB2 if you want to reduce fat and oils
