Oatmeal Protein Balls
I love having these protein balls on a hand for moments when I have a sweet tooth and need something to satisfy that craving! They're delicious and help keep me full. 

Dry Ingredients
1½ cups organic Rolled Oats (I use these)
1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder (I use this one because of it’s ingredients) 
Pinch of Sea Salt
2 tbsp shredded or desiccated Coconut

Wet Ingredients
½ cup organic Almond Butter/spread (or other nut or seed butter/spread)
¼ cup Honey or Maple syrup (to taste)
1 tsp Vanilla extract (optional)
1 drop Nutmeg essential oil (to taste)
1 drop Cinnamon Bark essential oil (to taste)
3 tbsp Coconut or Almond Milk (I use this one) 

Optional Additions
½ cup Raisins, currents and/or other finely chopped dried fruit
½ cup Chocolate Chips
1 – 2 tsp Chia Seeds
Melted Chocolate (for dipping the balls in)

1. Place all the dry ingredients in a large bowl place and stir well to combine.
2. Add in the wet ingredients except the coconut milk and any of the optional additions and stir to combine. The mixture will be sticky and crumbly.
3. Slowly add in the coconut the coconut milk 1 tbsp at a time. Using your hands, combine the mixture until it holds together. If the mixture is too dry add a little more coconut milk and mix again. Do not add too much liquid or the balls will not hold their shape.
4. You can use a tablespoon/scoop to measure the oat mixture so they are the same size. Roll the balls by hand and chill for at least 25 – 30 minutes to help them set before serving. You can keep this refrigerated for up to 1 week.
