Energy Balls

I knew we'd be taking snacks for our flight, so i packed: unsalted mixed nuts, an apple, rinsed prunes, rinsed dried cranberries, protein bars, and my new Energy Bars!
I sorta took a bunch of recipes ive seen and created my own.
Energy Balls:
2 cups oats
2 tbsp flax meal
1/4 cup almond meal (grind almonds)
1/2 cup nut butter
1/4 cup honey or agave
(cinnamon if want)
1. mix all ingredients together. Try to form a ball, if it's not sticky enough add some more nut butter & honey.
2. This is more of a tip but wet hands before you roll each ball. They form so much easier; if you dont they wont form because the stickyness just sticks to your hands.
3. Roll and stick in fridge to form.



*I made these sorta big so we wouldnt be packing so much but you can ceratinly make them any size.
*BTW you could totally take this mix and throw in the oven to make some granola instead!
