1 cup oats
⅓ cup peanut butter
1 Tbsp chia seeds
1 Tbsp flax seeds
1 Tbsp chocolate chips
1 Tbsp honey
Combine all ingredients in a bowl using your hands. Sure it’s messy but it’s the easiest way to get it mixed. Once your mixture is evenly combined it should be a consistency of cookie dough. If your mixture is too dry, try adding a tablespoon of MCT oil or coconut oil to moisten. All that’s left is to make small 2-bite sized balls out of the mixture. Store in an airtight container and enjoy!
