|Sunflowers make me think of the fiery heat of the summer sun.
These little snacks are not only a great way to embrace the element of fire, but are also a healthy pick-me up during a hectic day. As you mix and roll the balls, think of the sunflowers eagerly following the sun as it crosses the sky.
You will need:
• 1 cup old fashioned oats (not
• ½ cup ground flax seed
• ½ cup nut butter
• 1⁄3 cup honey, preferably local
• 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla
• ½ cup mini chocolate chips
• ½ cup sunflower seeds
This is so easy-dump it all into a bowl and mix well with a spoon.
Refrigerate for a half hour so it's firmer and easier to handle, then roll into one-inch balls of yumminess.
Store in the fridge.
As you form the dough into balls, try to focus on the healing, nurturing warmth of the sun.
