Peanut Butter Power Balls

These sweet, little nuggets are often a hit at parties.  

Easy. No-bake. Stick to your ribs. I have no idea why I haven't posted the recipe before now, but here we go:

  • ½ c. peanut butter (or your favorite nut butter)
  • ⅓ c. maple syrup or honey
  • ½ tsp. vanilla powder (if avoiding alcohol) or 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 c. oats (Use gluten-free, if you prefer.)
  • ⅔ c. toasted coconut flakes
  • ½ c. ground flax seed
  • ¼ c. cacao nibs 
  • 1-2 tbsp. chia or hemp seed
  • pinch of sea salt

Combine nut butter, syrup, vanilla and (optional) cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Add remaining dry ingredients. Chill in fridge for about 20-30 minutes. Roll into 1" balls. Eat. Enjoy.
