Ingredients


1/2 cup Rolled oats, dry (or gluten free)
3 tbsp Flaxseed meal (ground)
1 dash Cinnamon
1 pinch Sea salt
3 tbsp Coconut butter
1/4 cup Almond butter
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract, pure

Instructions


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, stir together the oats, flaxseed meal, cinnamon, and sea salt. Set aside.
  3. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt together the coconut butter, almond butter, and vanilla, about 5 minutes. Stir to combine.
  4. Pour the almond butter mixture over the oat mixture and stir well.
  5. Roll batter in the palm of your hand to form a golf ball-sized energy ball.
  6. Place each ball on the parchment-lined baking sheet and store them in the fridge for at least an hour to set. 
  7. Once set, the energy balls can be kept refrigerated in a sealed glass container.

Notes:

Oats contain a soluble fiber called beta-glucans, which helps slow down the absorption of glucose into the bloodstream, therefore, preventing sugar spikes!
