1 Cup of Peanut Butter (Or Choice of Alternative Butters, i.e. Almond, Sunflower Seed, Cashew, or Pecan)

1 Cup of Honey (Vegan Friendly Alternatives: BEE-FREE HONEY or Coconut Nectar)

1 Cup of Granola

1/2 Cup of Raisins

1/2 Cup of Sunflower Seeds (Or Choice of Nut)

1/4 Cup of Flax Seed

1 Scoop of Protein Powder

2 Cups of Coconut Flakes

1 Orange

 

Begin by adding the Peanut Butter & Honey in a double broiler or microwavable safe bowl until melted into a thick creamy-like substance. If you are using the microwave heat & stir 30 seconds at a time (this will usually take a one minute total).

After the base is heated let it cool for 5 minutes in the fridge while you begin to prep our coconut flakes. Using a convection oven  – place the coconut evenly on the pan & toast til golden crispy. Make sure to keep an eye on the flakes to prevent burning.

Take Peanut Butter mixture from fridge & begin to add Granola, Raisins, Seeds, & Powder. Fold until evenly mixed. After mixing – by using a grater create zest into the mix from your whole orange, then mix evenly.

After your mixture is done & your toasted coconut has cooled start to creative small bite-sized balls from the mixture & evenly coat with the toasted coconut.

Refrigerate balls when done.

Enjoy!
