2 cups Oatmeal
1 cup Flaxseed (mill)
1 cup nut butter (I used ½ PB2, powdered peanut butter and ½ natural peanut butter)
1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder (optional)
⅓ cup honey (⅔ cup honey if using protein powder)
½ cup shredded unsweetened coconut (optional)
Combine ingredients in a large bowl.
Spread in a pan, roll into balls or use my quick portion control method and fill mini muffin tins with a heaping tablespoon.
Press down firmly to make sure your ingredients stay stuck together.
Freeze for 1 hour, and slice into bars or serve as frozen balls or truffles.
Keep stored in freezer.
Other optional ingredients could be chocolate chips, dried cranberries, raisins, sunflower seeds, you name it, they are yours to enjoy.
I love making my own granola. Not only does it fill our house with an incredible mouth-watering aroma when baking but I control the ingredients and amount of sugar and can add anything I feel like my or my families diet may be missing. My daughter, simply devours it, that being said it is far too hot in the Low country to be baking anything! Hence, Frozen Granola Balls were made. They are a quick easy after dinner treat or even as breakfast as you make a sprint for the door and i’ve also savored a few of their chewy pieces in my normally boring plain old yogurt. I hope you enjoy them too!
