(estimated for 3 bites: 345 calories, 6g fibre, 7g protein)
Preparation time: 20 min
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup of your favourite roasted seeds (I mixed salted sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds together as I like a little sweet and salty)
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pitted dates
Handful of dried cranberries (unsweetened if possible)
1-2 tbsp of a binder such as honey, golden syrup, nut-free butter (something nice and sticky) **I like golden syrup.
TIP: For extra flavour toast the oats in the oven at 250F for 10-15min until lightly browned before combining.
Combine oats, dates, half of the chocolate chips, seeds and cranberries in a food processor. Process on high, adding binder until the mixture starts to stick together enough to form into balls. Add the remaining chocolate chips.
Form by hand into ¾-1 inch size balls and freeze or refrigerate until consumed. Will last 2-3 days in the fridge and up to 3 months in the freezer.
Note: you can use the oat, date and binder base and add whatever seeds and extras you prefer depending on your personal tastes.
