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.
