The goal was to create bites or balls, but many of the athletes ended up dishing it out and eating with forks and spoons. It went over really well with the group and many wanted the recipe to make them at home.
Here is the recipe I provided them with:
Makes approximately 2 dozen depending on size.
- 1/2 C nut butter (almond butter, peanut butter, sunflower seed butter or any other nut or seed butter)
- 1/3 C honey
- 1 C old fashioned rolled oats (you can toast for a nuttier flavor at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes)
- 1 C shredded unsweetened coconut (you can substitute any dry ingredients for this, wheat bran or germ, oat bran, some ground flax seed, any kind of ground nuts or seeds)
- 1-2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 C other addins (any kind of whole or roughly chopped nuts or seeds, dried fruit, good, etc)
