This is one of the girls' favorite grab-n-go snacks or breakfasts. During the school year, I try to keep a batch of these in the fridge.


2 cups quick oats
½ cup chocolate chips
2/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
½ cup peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon salt
1 scoop protein powder (optional)


In a large bowl, mix together the oats, chocolate chips, and coconut.
Add the peanut butter, honey, vanilla, salt. Mix well until evenly combined.
Roll out balls about an inch in diameter.
Store in an airtight container.


Save yourself a lot of time and use a small cookie scoop.
Sometimes I like to add a little sprinkle of mini m&ms for a pop of color.
