With these breakfast-inspired balls stashed in your fridge or freezer, you'll never have to skip breakfast again. For a meal, grab one or two balls along with a plain, grass-fed Greek yogurt, if you can. Otherwise, enjoy them as a midday snack. They have plenty of oats to punch up your soluble fiber intake for the day too.

INGREDIENTS

SERVES 12

  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (with salt)
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Nectar
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 cup Granola Cereal
  • 1/4 cup Ground Flax Seeds
  • 1/4 cup Unsweetened Toasted Coconut Flakes

DIRECTIONS

1 In a large bowl, stir together the peanut butter (or almond butter), coconut nectar (or honey), and vanilla extract until evenly combined. Add the oats, granola, flax seeds, and coconut flakes (or chips) and stir until evenly combined. (Hint: Break up any large granola clusters or coconut chips into smaller pieces, if necessary.)
2 With clean hands, firmly form while squeezing mixture into 12 balls, about 2 tablespoons each.
3 Place in a sealed container. Store in the refrigerator for 1 week or freezer for 1 month.
