Ingredients
1 ½ cup rolled oats
½ cup protein powder (approx. 2 scoops)
1/3 cup flaxseed meal (optional)
½ tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp chia seeds
½ cup smooth nut butter (make sure it’s stirred well – it’s worth it!)
3 tbsp sweetener (raw honey, maple syrup, agave syrup, etc.)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup dried fruit (raisins, cranberries, cherries, etc.) or mini chocolate chips
2-4 tbsp liquid (milkmilk alternative, or water)
¼ cup unsweetened medium shred coconut (optional) 

Method
Add oats, protein powder, flax meal, cinnamon + chia seeds in a large bowl and stir to combine
Add in nut butter, sweetener + vanilla, stir to combine
Fold in dried fruit or chocolate chips
Add 2 tbsp liquid and mix in with your hands until it comes together in a ball that holds together.  If mixture is too dry and crumbly add another tbsp of liquid. Just take the liquids slow so that it doesn’t become too soft and won’t hold shape
Roll into balls
Roll balls in coconut if using
