These no-bake treats are perfect for after-school snacks, post workout pick-me-ups, or team snacks. They're loaded with healthy ingredients and delicious to boot. Just don't eat too many - they pack around 125 calories each.
We made ours in a stand mixer (naturally), which allows you to easily combine tough-to-mix ingredients and double your recipe without wearing out your mixing elbow. The entire measuring and mixing process took less than 10 minutes. After a 30 minute cooling period, the balls came together in about 5 minutes.
Pictured are our selected combinations, based on what we had on hand. Almond butter-chia-almond-golden-raisin; almond butter-chia-coconut-mini chocolate chip; and almond butter-cranberry-white chocolate.
You can substitute your favorites and develop your own combinations using whichever ingredients you find in your pantry. These are gluten-free if you used an oat brand certified as such (Bob's Red Mill makes one) and can also be nut-free with a butter substitution.
SUGGESTED RECIPE COMBINATIONS
For nut allergies: In place of the almond or peanut butter, try sunflower seed butter.
