Like my homemade granola, these sweet treats are easy to bring along with you when you're out and about (like on a camping trip) or to keep in the refrigerator for a quick, energy-filled snack at home.

The best part is, they're super-easy to make - you just mix them up and they're ready to go!

What You Need:

1 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup nut/seed butter (I used sun butter on this occasion)

1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut

1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used these for this batch)

1/3 cup honey (start with this amount and work your way down - I just use 1 Tablespoon for us)

1/4 cup chia seeds

2 Tablespoons hemp powder 

1 teaspoon vanilla (although I usually squirt in a bit more)

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

What You Do:

1.  Dump everything into a large bowl.

2.  Mix everything up.  I find it's easiest to use my (clean) hands to do this.

3.  If you want, squeeze the mixture into cute little bite-sized balls:

4.  Or, if you're lazy like I usually am, just smoosh it all into a container and eat it with a spoon:

This is one of our favorite things to have on hand to grab for an easy breakfast, or a tasty snack.  I'd love to hear which way you enjoy them best - leave a comment or email me at lisahealy (at) outlook (dot) com.
