Granola Balls

I hosted a marriage class last night and kind of threw these together to see if it worked.  They turned out to be delicious so I wanted to share the recipe!

(makes about 36 balls)

First, you will need to make a batch of GRANOLA.

3 cups Oats
1 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
1 cup Cashews
1/2 cup Alminds
1/2 cup Pecans
1/2 cup Pumpkin Seeds
1/2 cup Sunflower Seeds
1/4 cup Chia Seeds
1 teaspoon Salt
1/2 cup Maple Syrup
2 tablespoons Melted Coconut Oil
1 teaspoon Vanilla
4 drops YL Cinnamon Bark Vitality EO
3 drops YL Clove Vitality EO
2 drops YL Nutmeg Vitality EO

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.  Combine the wet ingredients well and add them to the dry.  Stir well to combine.  Spread the mixture evenly onto the parchment covered baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes.  It will crisp as it cools.

Once the granola is cooled, you can make the GRANOLA BALLS.

3 cups Granola
10 Pitted Dates
1/2 cup YL Dried Wolfberries
1/3 cup Water
1/4 cup Vanilla Spice or Chocolate Pure Protein Complete

Add the first four ingredients to a food processor and pulse until a dough is formed.  Roll out 1" balls in the palm of your hand and toss them in the protein powder to cover.  Let them rest in the fridge for one hour before consuming.

These are quick and easy to make.  My kids loved them so it's a great, healthy snack to keep on hand for them.  Plus, you'll have lots of delicious granola leftover, too!
