Number of Servings: 24

Ingredients

    1 cup (dry) oatmeal (I used old-fashioned oats)
    2/3 cup toasted coconut flakes
    1/2 cup peanut butter
    1/2 cup ground flaxseed or wheat germ
    1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
    1/3 cup honey
    1 tsp. vanilla


Tips

Substitution ideas can abound for just about any of these ingredients! Feel free to substitute in your favorite nut butter (almond butter, sunflower seed butter, etc.) for the peanut butter. And you could also add in some wheat germ in place of some or all of the flaxseed. I would caution, though, against substituting agave nectar for the honey, as the honeyfs thickness helps hold things together.
Some other fun substitutions for the chocolate chips (or an addition to them) could include:

* chopped dried fruit (apricots, dates, raisins, etc.)
* dried berries (cranberries, cherries, etc.)
* chopped almonds, pecans, walnuts, or sunflower seeds
* other chips (butterscotch, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate, M&Ms, etc.)
* other grains (different kinds of oatmeal, rice cereal, etc.)

Directions

Makes about 20-25 balls.

Serving Size: makes 20-25 balls

    Couple of questions about this recipe. How many is a serving? How many calories per serving and please don't say it makes one serving because the numbers don't add up. I do like the ingredients and love oatmeal raw with my morning almond milk and raisins. - 3/13/17
