I LOVE “window shopping” at the local health food store. I ran across cacao and knew exactly what to make with it!

INGREDIENTS

1c GF oats (dry)
1/2c flax meal/ground flax seed
4T PB2
2T water
1/3c organic honey
1/4c cacao chips
1/4c organic unsweetened coconut flakes
.07oz instant coffee (prepackaged. I travel w/these too)
1t vanilla

PREP

Using hand mixer or stand mixer, thoroughly mix. Mold into balls. Refrigerate. Enjoy.

– I have seen SEVERAL variations of this recipe. Instead of the cacao and coconut, use 1/2c of cranberries, raisins, white or chocolate chips, almonds, peanuts, trail mix, pumpkin and sunflower seeds. The key is a 1/2 cup of something. Only thing I want sweet in the morning is my latte, the cacao and unsweetened coconut with PB2, instead of something like Jiffy, toned the honey down. If you have an allergy to peanut butter, use a 1/2c of sun butter. If you don’t care for vanilla, leave it out. Easy!

If you have another variation, I’d love to hear it!
