Makes 16 balls



1 cup old fashioned (regular) oats

2/3 cup creamy peanut butter, or other nut butter

1/2 cup coconut flakes with no added sugar

1/2 cup dates, finely chopped

1/4 cup ground flax seed

1/4 cup semisweet mini chocolate chips

1/4 cup sunflower seeds

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt



Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. Cover and chill in refrigerator for half an hour.

Roll into golf ball-sized balls, about two tablespoons each. These taste even better the next day, after the flavors blend.

Store in an airtight container, refrigerated, for up to 1 week. Make in batches and freeze for months.
