Ingredients

For Almond Joy Balls:

  • 6 TBS creamy almond butter
  • 2 TBS honey
  • 2 TBS coconut oil (softened)
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 TBS flax seeds (optional)
  • 1 TBS chia seeds (optional)
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut (unsweetened or sweetened)
  • 1/4 cup chopped almonds

For Dipping Almond Joy Balls:

  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Instructions

  • In a medium sized bowl, add your almond butter, honey, coconut oil, oats, flax, chia, chocolate chips, coconut, and almonds. Stir the mixture together till the oats are evenly coated in the liquid mixture.
  • Stick the bowl in the fridge for about 10 minutes, to help so it isn't so sticky when rolling.
  • Roll the oat mixture into small balls, about 1 to 1.5 Tablespoons in size (I made 18 balls) and set them onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, or a silicone liner. (The best way I found the balls to stick together is squeezing them in one of my hands, then carefully shaping them into rounded balls - yes, it is a bit messy).
  • Chill the pan in the fridge for about 10 minutes.
  • Melt the chocolate chips in a small bowl in 30 second increments, until you can stir it smooth.
  • Scoop the chocolate into a ziplock bag, and snip a small piece of a corner of the bag off. Then remove the pan from the fridge and drizzle the chocolate evenly over the tops of the balls.
  • Place the pan back in the fridge to chill more until the balls are hardened, and the chocolate is set.
  • Enjoy a couple now, and put the remaining energy balls into a ziplock bag to store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
