Allyn’s Energy Balls
Makes twelve balls

I am not a big, sweet person, which is good. If I start eating sweet things, I want more. My energy balls are lovely but so filling that you only want one or two. These are great for the sweet cravings we all get at times.

Organic oatmeal, 1½ cup 
Flaxseed meal, ½ cup 
Organic pure maple syrup, ⅓ cup 
Honey, 3 tbsp (honey is not vegan; remember, it comes from bees). You can skip this and add a bit of maple syrup
Pure vanilla extract, 1 tsp 
Vegan chocolate chips, 3 tbsp 
Sun butter, ½ cup of (we don’t like the organic as much, but you can use that also)
Coconut flakes, 2 tbsp

In a mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients and blend with a spatula until you have a consistent mixture. Refrigerate the mixture until it is cold. This makes it easier to form into balls. Make the mixture into golf ball-sized balls and keep them refrigerated. Eat as a dessert, snack, or quick pick-me-up.

Please let me know how you like my desserts, and have a wonderful Valentine’s Day.
