Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups regular oats
  • 1/2 cup dry pitted dates
  • 1/3 cup Simple Truth almond butter
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon Simple Truth raw honey
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 12 tablespoons of water

Cinnamon Sugar Coating:

  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions

  1. To a food processor add regular oats, dates, almond butter, ground flaxseed, ground cinnamon and vanilla extract. Blend until finely diced.
  2. Next add in melted coconut oil, honey and water. Blend until the mixture starts to get sticky. (if you need to add more water to make them bind together you can, this is just the amount I used.)
  3. Roll into 1″ balls and place on a parchment paper.
  4. To a small bowl add coconut sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. Mix together.
  5. Roll the energy balls in cinnamon sugar mixture.
  6. Eat right away or store in ziplock bag in the refrigerator until ready to eat.
