1/2 cup almond butter (creamy, no salt or sugar added)
1/4 cup honey
Preparing this recipe:
In a food processor or Magic Bullet combine oats, chocolate protein powder, flax seeds and chia seeds. Pulse to blend to a thick flour consistency.
In a medium bowl combine dry ingredients and room temperature almond butter and honey. Stir until dry ingredients, honey and almond butter are thoroughly combined. Cover and place in refrigerator to chill for 10-15 minutes to allow the ingredients to combine and firm.
Roll with your hands into 22 small round bites. Enjoy!
