All of us prioritize the time in our days differently. Whether you make time for meals or not, these little guys most definitely have a place somewhere in your day. They can be breakfast on-the-go (PERFECT for after that morning spin or yoga class) or they can be a mid-afternoon snack when you’re feeling snack-y. Or both, I’m not judging. In fact, I’ll be so proud of you for getting some healthy fiber and protein into your day.
1 large banana, mashed
1/3 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup rolled oats (not quick cook)
1 TBS hemp seeds
1 TBS chia seeds
1 TBS dried goji berries
1 TBS mini chocolate chips
1 TBS maple syrup
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup + 1 TBS unsweetened coconut flakes, separated
On a large plate, pour 1/2 cup coconut flakes and shake carefully to make an even layer. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients, and mix with a large spoon or spatula to thoroughly combine. Refrigerate mixture for 10 minutes to let it set.
Using a 1 TBS measure, scoop and roll mixture gently in your hands to create each ball, and roll in coconut flakes until evenly coated. Repeat, and line balls on a cookie sheet. When done, refrigerate balls for 15 minutes.
You can eat right away, or you can pack them away in the refrigerator or freezer. They’ll keep in the fridge 2-3 days, and you can store in the freezer for 1-2 weeks.
