Munchie Balls

Yield: 24 munchie balls

1 cup toasted unsweetened coconut
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup quick oats
1/2 cup milled flaxseed
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chocolate chips

  1. Toast the coconut in a skillet, stirring often. Watch for the edges of the coconut to just brown-it will brown quickly.
  2. Put the warm toasted coconut into a mixing bowl, then add peanut butter. *Tip: adding the warm coconut to the peanut butter will slightly melt and soften the mixture, making it easy to combine.
  3. Add oats, flaxseed, vanilla, and honey - mix well. Last, add chocolate chips.
  4. Using a 1 in cookie dough scoop, make mixture into balls and put into a sealed container.
  5. Let munchie balls cool in the refrigerator at least 30 min before serving.
