      Directions

      01

      In food processor, pulse and chop sprouted oats to the consistency of quick oats—about 1/8th original size (about 5 to 10 seconds).

      02

      Add ground flaxseed, vanilla, dates, cinnamon, almond butter, almond milk, and coconut oil and blend to sticky consistency. If mixture sticks to edges, scrape down with rubber spatula between blending.

      03

      Add cranberries and shredded coconut and lightly pulse until blended into oat mixture.

      04

      Scoop 1 Tbsp (15 mL) mixture in your hand, squeeze, and form into 1 in (2.5 cm) balls. If mixture is too soft to handle, place in fridge for 30 minutes before creating balls. Place formed balls in parchment paper-lined container.

      05

      Store in airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week or, alternatively, store in the freezer for up to 1 month.
