Have you tried cookie butter yet?? I had seen it quite a few times while shopping at Trader Joe’s, but hadn’t tried it until recently. It is so good! It has the flavor of biscuit cookies or gingerbread, with the texture of peanut butter. It comes in smooth and chunky and both are amazing! I especially like it on graham crackers or just straight from the jar.
These energy balls are great for breakfast or an afternoon pick me up. I hope you get the chance to try them out and enjoy them as much as we do.
1 1/4 cup of old fashioned oats
1 cup of sweetened coconut, toasted
1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup of cookie butter, crunchy or smooth
1 tablespoon of chia seeds
2 tablespoons of flax seed meal
1/3 cup of honey
1 teaspoon of vanilla
pinch of salt
Mix all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Cover and refrigerate for a half an hour or so until it firms up and is easy to shape. Use a small scoop and your hands to form small balls. Place in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator. Will last up to a week.
