Energy Balls

So I realize I wrote about this originally ages ago and completely spaced about giving you the recipe. Whoops!
Here's the long overdue recipe!

Energy Balls
Makes 16 1-inch balls

1 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon natural peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup ground flax seeds
1/3 cup shredded coconut
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped dried cherries or cranberries

Mix all the ingredients together.
Refrigerate for 45 minutes-1 hour
Roll into 1-inch balls and keep refrigerated.

Stats (per ball): 
Calories: 136
Fat: 7g
Carbs: 16.5 g
Sugar: 9.5 g
Protein: 3.5 g


These are delicious! They're perfect to have before exercising or afterwards for a good burst of energy. The flax seeds add a nice crispiness to them that reminds you of Rice Krispies.
