Coco-Chocolate Energy Balls


-1 cup oats
-1/4 cup smooth peanut butter + 2 tablespoons
-1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
-1 tablespoon cocoa powder
-1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
-1.5 tablespoons honey
-1.5 tablespoons flaxseed milk (or any milk of choice)
-about 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips


-more unsweetened shredded coconut to roll onto energy balls

Note: Once I formed them into balls I rolled some of them in coconut and those ones ended up being my favorite!

-mix ingredients together and form into balls (similar to cookie dough)
-place 1-2" apart on parchment paper, and freeze for about 20 minutes (alternative option: place one ball per muffin cup for easy freeze and storage)
-remove from parchment paper and store in freezer bags for grab-and-go nutrient-dense snacks
