Give these a try for a perfect "grab & go" afternoon snack - Chia & Cranberry Energy Balls!
1/3 cup peanut butter, almond butter OR your favorite smooth no stir nut or seed butter
1/4 cup liquid honey, brown rice syrup, agave syrup
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/3 cup finely shredded coconut leave out and use ground flax seed, oat flour or protein powder instead of coconut if you are not a fan
1 cup old-fashioned or quick oats use gluten free if necessary
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1 tbsp @truvibeorganics chia seed
Handful of @truvibeorganics cacao nibs or chocolate chips
In a large bowl, mix together heated nut/seed butter and honey until smooth.
Stir in shredded coconut, oats, chia and mix until well combined. Add optional add-ins if desired. Fold in cranberries/cacao nibs/chocolate chips.
Wet hands slightly and form dough tightly into 1" - 1.5" balls. Or, if dough doesn't stick together place dough in the fridge for 30 minutes prior to forming dough balls so it's easier to handle. Press additional cranberries evenly around dough, if desired.
Store in airtight container in refrigerator or freezer until ready to enjoy.
