Nutrient Rich Snack Balls

Updated: Sep 13, 2018

A healthy substitute to store-bought granola bars


Unhealthy ingredients found in many prepared granola bars include high fructose corn syrup, palm oil, palm kernel oil, trans fats, bleached flour, unbleached flour and wheat flour.


INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup old fashioned oats

  • 2 tbsp vegan protein powder of choice

  • ¼ cup unsweetened mini chocolate chips or cacao nibs

  • ½ cup organic almond butter or peanut butter

  • ¼ cup freshly ground flax meal

  • 1 tbsp chia seeds

  • ¼ cup local maple syrup

  • ¼ tsp almond extract or ½ tsp vanilla

  • 1 pinch ground Himalayan rock salt

DIRECTIONS:​

  1. Add all of your ingredients into a bowl and stir to combine. Full disclosure: I use my hands to mix.

  2. Cover and refrigerate for at least 45 minutes. Once chilled, form desired bite-sized balls - be prepared for a little bit of effort, the mixture tends to be crumbly.

  3. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.
