Ingredients

  • cups old-fashioned oats
  • ½ cup dried cherries
  • ¼ cup mini milk chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • ½ cup almond butter
  • cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, combine the oats, dried cherries, chocolate chips, and chia seeds. Set aside.
  • In a small, microwaveable bowl, add the almond butter and honey. Microwave for 15-20 seconds, or until almond butter melts slightly so that it is easier to stir. Let cool slightly, if needed.
  • Remove from microwave and add in vanilla extract. Stir thoroughly until mixture is smooth.
  • Pour almond butter mixture over oat mixture and stir to combine, ensuring all of the oats are covered. If the mixture seems too wet, add 1 tablespoon (or more) of oats, until it comes together.
  • Place bowl into refrigerator and chill for 15-20 minutes so that mixture holds together and is easier to shape into balls.
  • Once mixture is slightly firm, form into small balls. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.

Notes

  • If mixture is too dry, add more honey to hold together.
