I totally made this recipe up on the fly and I’m impressed with myself.
I am always on the hunt for healthy snacks that I can leave in the fridge for my teens to grab and for myself after teaching a fitness class.
These are a perfect post-workout snack, lunchbox addition, after school snack, stuck-in-traffic snack.
In a food processor, add
- 1 cup drained, canned chickpeas
- 3 dried pitted dates
- 1 Tblsp honey
- 1 Tblsp Tahini, Almond or Peanut butter
- 2 Tblsp ground flax
Chop for about 5 seconds. Then add
- 1/2 cup rolled oats and pulse until blended
Transfer to a large bowl and stir in
- 2 Tblsp chia seeds
Roll into 9 bite sized balls and keep refrigerated. Option is to roll the balls in some in coconut flakes before refrigerating.
