These are a great quick snack, high in protein and a sweet treat.
2 cups quick oats (I use gluten free)
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
8 tablespoons of nut butter (I use almond but mix it up or use your favorite)
5 tablespoons maple syrup (use the real stuff)
2-4 tablespoons water
1/4-1/2 cup chocolate chips (I use the darker the better)
Mix oats and coconut together.
Add nut butter, maple syrup and water. Start with 2 tablespoons and add more if needed. You want them to be sticky enough to roll into balls. Add chocolate chips.
Form into 1 inch balls on parchment paper.
I put them in layers of parchment paper in an air tight container and freeze them.
When you want to eat them just take out for 1 minute and they will be soft enough to eat.
