No Bake Oatmeal Energy Balls

Ingredients

· 1 1/4 cups  Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Rolled Oats· 2 tablespoons "power mix-ins"· 1/2 cup nut butter of choice (peanut butter is my go-to)· 1/3 cup sticky liquid sweetener of choice (honey or maple syrup)· 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract· 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt· 1/2 cup mix-ins (see below for flavor options)· Any nut butter (honey, 1/2 cup chocolate chips)· Peanut butter (honey, 3 tablespoons chocolate chips, 3 tablespoons chopped peanuts, 2 tablespoons raisins)· Almond butter ( or cashew butter, honey, 1/4 cup dried cranberries, 1/4 cup white chocolate chips)· Replace 1/2 cup of the oatmeal with 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes· Any nut butter (any sweetener, 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips, ADD 2 tablespoons cocoa powder)· Almond butter ( or cashew butter, maple syrup, 1/2 cup raisins, ADD 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon)

Instructions

Step 1Place all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl: oats, power mix-ins, nut butter, sweetener, vanilla extract, salt, mix-ins, and any other spices you'd like to add. Stir to combine. If the mixture seems too wet, add a bit more oats. If it's too dry, add a bit more nut butter. It should resemble a somewhat sticky dough that holds together when lightly squeezed. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to set (this will make the balls easier to roll later on).Step 2Remove the bowl from the refrigerator and portion the dough into balls of desired size. (I use a cookie scoop to make mine approximately 1 inch in diameter). Enjoy!
