Ingredients

  • 1 cup oatmeal {I used old fashioned organic oats}
  • ½ cup gluten-free granola mix
  • ½ cup ground flaxseed
  • ½ cup natural peanut butter
  • ½ cup walnuts {or almonds}
  • ¼ cup raisins or dried cranberries
  • ½ to ¾ cup maple syrup {you could also use 1/3 cup honey}*
  • 1 Tbsp natural cocoa
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients {in no particular order} in a mixing bowl and mix until well blended.
  • Place in the fridge for 30-60 minutes to let them set up.
  • Remove from fridge and roll into golf ball sized balls.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

  • I chose not to use honey this go around because I’ve read that honey shouldn’t be consumed by children under 1 years of age and I am breastfeeding and didn’t want to chance anything. So maple syrup it was and it worked great!
