Well, I promised another birthday recipe from my dad’s special day, so here it is! This dish is a another family favorite. It’s tasty and gooey enough for my brothers to enjoy, but healthy enough for my mom to like. It actually has ground flaxseeds and chia seeds, which are an awesome source of protein. And even though it has a chocolatey taste, it’s actually made with unsweetened cocoa, which is technically healthy. I love to eat this early in the mornings, when I need an energy boost in the afternoon, and when I have a sweet tooth before bed. Plus, it takes a crazy short time to make! These Chocolate Oatmeal Balls are a must try!
1 c. old-fashioned oatmeal
⅓ c. almonds, chopped
⅔ c. sweetened shredded coconut
½ cup of ground flaxseed (optional)
½ c. nut butter (peanut or almond are both good)
⅓ c. honey
1 Tbsp. chia seeds
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 Tspn vanilla extract
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Thoroughly mix. Afterwards, place the mixture in the fridge for about 30 minutes. Afterwards, roll into balls of about 1 diameter. And …. Enjoy!
That’s it! Usually, Not Just Another Blog includes a Handy Dandy summary to simplify the recipe, but this one doesn’t need it! The Chocolate Balls are so easy! My siblings love to make it with me, so definitely try this recipe out with your family! Trust me, you're going to love this it. Comment if you're committed to trying this recipe!
Also, in the picture, there are carrot oatmeal balls as well. This recipe is amazing as well (although chocolate always comes first.) If you would like a the recipe for carrot balls as well, just request it in the comment section. :)
